Greg VdB: 1) unfortunately ALL companies bring to market flawed products from time to time
2) this updated version is a good thing for future buyers
3) Nikon should have publicly appologized to affected D600 users and offered THEM a permanent solution as well
If Nikon CEO Admit that he made Mistake, that will force him to commit Harakiri.
Patco: "Some other things we enjoyed about the D600 were its solid, weather-sealed magnesium alloy body"Really? According to Nikon, only the top & rear covers are magnesium, so the body is mostly plastic.
DPreview must be getting lots of money from Nikon.
FreedomLover: Nikon is following Microsoft's way of business:More defects makes more money, just continually sell buggy updates.
Nikon always claimed there was no problem, and all problems solved. So now people can buy the next defective batch. And there will be many saying there is no problem.
By Gully Foyle (5 hours ago)*phone ringing*Nikon CEO: Yes?Nikon Tech. Dept.: Err, hello Mr. Masai. About the oil spill?Nikon CEO: Yes? What about it?Nikon Tech. Dept.: It... uhmm... wasn't the shutter mechanism after all. It was the mirror...
By WhiteHotPhotos (4 hours ago)I had a D600 with sensor spots from day # 1. They were not over-hyped anything. They were real. It was sent in for cleaning several times AND the shutter was replaced as recently as August. The spots STILL CAME BACK even with the new shutter!! Dozens of them. If they try to pass off the D610 as refurbed D600's with new shutters they will have a PR nightmare if the spots return.
I hope they fixed the problem. If not they will pay for it. I lost all the confidence in Nikon. Nikon need to earn my and lots of peoples respect by providing better product and better service.
Nikon is in business of making Money not the Camera. Service is given only when they do not have choice.
We need that in DSLR Sony, Cannon and Nikon should use this technology in their cameras.
