In all seriousness, after 10 months of almost daily use I have zero spots on my fixed lens prime lens camera sensor. But if a fixed lens prime is not your thing, practice sensor cleaning because the D600 can produce awesome images.

Personally, I'd be more than happy to accept a D600 that needed cleaning every 2000 or even 1000 shutters. That's doable. Both the copies I've had so far have been more like 50-100 shutters before dozens of new spots appear, a few significant enough to show at f/8. Do you expect me to carry swabs and Eclipse in my backpack on a hike and stop in the nearest dustless cave every two hours? This is the problem with the logic of everyone -- and there are a ton of you across the 'net -- who pushes the idea of "just quit whining and clean your sensor!" If only it were that simple.
