D600 just back from Nikon Service
4 months ago

Purchased in November as a Nikon Refurb from Cameta.   Arrived with a dirty sensor, and I was somewhat annoyed, but at the price I paid I kept it and cleaned it.  I enjoyed the camera through the holidays.   With use, however, the sensor developed more spots which could not be cleaned (by me).

Long story short, sent it in for service on 2/25 as my 90 day warranty was expiring (and not knowing that the next day Nikon would issue the infamous press release).   Nikon Melville took it in on 2/26, and I got it back today 3/5.  (interestingly, the Nikon site still says its in 'shipping')   Took a few test shots, and all is well....the sensor is clean and serene.

The repair sheet say:

RPL SHUTTER MECHANISM

RELATED PARTS (x7)

CLN LOW PASS FILTER

GENERAL CHECK AND CLEAN

However, I did notice from the EXIF that the Shutter Release count is about 45 clicks more than when I sent it in.   I assumed with a new shutter, this would be reset to zero, no?  Is this a firmware function should that have been reset?  I just kinda have it in the back of my head that it wasn't actually replaced with a new/D610 shutter.

Not that it matters right now....I'm just glad to have the camera back so quickly.  Loving the IQ, large viewfinder, and a new 28mm 1.8G that was just delivered yesterday.   As well as peace of mind that I can probably send it back in six months from now when the D620 shutter comes out.
