I suppose you can make your own conclusion of what I said.

I am stating that if one was afflicted with this issue (like me), selling the D600 to now purchase a D610 based upon dust/oil, makes no financial sense to ME. Selling the camera at a $1,000 loss because of this issue for MOST users also makes no sense to me. I get that a 2k camera "should" not have this issue out of the box but what if it did and the manufacturers fix was not a FINAL solution? I guess sell it at a loss? What if you could resolve it and it got better over time?

I am not saying nikon is right in how this issue was dealt with but lets be real. You have problems like dust/oil on some cameras and you have problems like memory card slot failure, total shutdown, green light of death or focus issues. lets keep it in perspective.

I have avoided the d600 forum for this specific reason. Most people take the issue and turn it into doom and gloom. The sky is falling and where is will smith to save us? kind of stuff.

Your average shooter would benefit from avoiding such forums and spending that energy in taking a photography class, reading photography books, or forbid me for saying it....shooting with the camera. I hear a lot of lonely cats meowing right now cause the owner is busy posting about how the d600 is garbage because of dust and how they plan to spend money on the new d610 or maybe switch to another brand.

nikon made a product that has a known issue.....they seem to have no consistent fix. They suck...I get it. I am not going to toss and turn over it. I will still deliver my clients nice photos and if I ever work with a company that needs photos of white walls they have painted, I will be sure to rent a canon

I get why people hate nikon for this issue and how they felt abused now that word of a D610 has come but really folks, breathe in and for the love of god dont sell your d600 right away to get a d600 solely based upon dust. Unless you work for that white wall companies photography department or any other style of photography where it makes financial sense and the issue is such a time consuming burden.
