"D600S" - pie in the sky

I was talking to a Nikon sales rep. today that seems to know some inside info on the goings on with the D600.

sales reps always pretend to have "inside info" - but almost never do. He probably just reads NR.

He thinks that Nikon is going to sweep the current dust issue under the rug by replacing the D600 with an "upgraded" D600S model that will be announced soon.  That will fix the dust issue but have some upgrades to "save face" like the CAM3500, and 1/8000 shutter speed.  This will make the new camera be distinctly different than the old D600 so they can quietly discontinue the D600.  They will then keep the D600S at the same price drop the old D600 price to clear the stock and then discontinue them.

It seems that they can not fix the issue with dust in current D600.  Even the new units are experiencing the issues even after they acknowledged that it is prone to "dusting."  There is obviously a design flaw that precludes a simple fix.

Nikon are far more likely to quietly make the internal changes to the D600 needed to fix the dust / oil  issue, keep callng it D600, and never officially acknowlege that there ever was an issue.
