D600 Repair Update 300 Shots Later

I'm very pleased (and relieved) to report that my D600, repaired by the Nikon Los Angeles Repair Facility, continues to be completely oil free and 99% dust free.

This statement comes after I tested the D600 today at 300 shots after repair, 50 of which were made one month ago with CL shutter action and those 50 were pointed straight upwards to the sky.

The primary fix made by Nikon was to replace the shutter assembly.

Moderators: with your indulgence, this report will be posted on two other threads where I made my initial assessment of Nikon's repair job about a month ago.

Thanks. The D600 has really taken a beating here on dpreview - on this site. I love mine from day 1. I guess I was lucky.

I have simply become proficient at cleaning the sensor. For me it is a minor flaw...

The main thrust would be how one defines minor. For me the tipping point to major became when I realized that my camera was producing enough oil to cause me to wet clean the camera every 100 shots.

Now that Nikon successfully did the fix, I have joined the enthusiasts who sings the praises of the D600.

The D600 is a fabulous piece of gear. Period!!

Steve-

As my byline says, I'd rather be lucky than good. I've seen your work. In regards to your D600 and the work you produce, in that specific order you are lucky (with your D600) and good, very good (with the images you produce)!!

This camera is so good that I no longer consider the need to "chimp' the shot on the LCD to view the histogram...........I know that the D600 metering is spot on!!
