On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

HK photographer: Nikon made anouncement to tackle the D600 problem after an US law firm started to gather D600 customers for collective action (it's in the news last month).
Chinese customer protection department didn't pay attention to D600 until some Nikon dealers blamed the D600 sensor problem to the smog, not to the camera. General manager of Nikon appeared in Chinese photo web to clarify the issue afterwards but Nikon China had done nothing to tackle the D600 issue before that -- there was much delay than their action in US. That's why the Chinese felt the discrimination. Same as when Toyota recalled their cars in US few years ago but left the Chinese buyers alone. At the end, the CEA of Toyota had to go to China to apologise.
I nearly bought a D600, so I have been following up the issue of dust. Nikon has been dead slow in admitting its own problem. Nikon, you can only blame yourself. Sadly, some people here have taken this chance to air their view against the wrong target.

Please don't drag in issues not relating to quality issue of D600 and please don't get personal.

it so happens today that the Toyota issue that I have mentioned is brought up again in news -- US$1.2bn settlement has been reached between Toyota and the US regulatros aftter a 4-year inquiry into reported safty issues.

Mark Chan: OMG; the editors at dpreview MUST be loonies to have this posted - the pictures are boarding for construction work.

Nothing else.

To attribute this to anything else is poor reporting. If you read the article it shows that.

This is not to say we don't have poor air quality - I live here and you have no idea how bad it can get on days like this. And YES I would love for the environmental protection department to get their act together, but THIS is not one of them, and rightfully shouldn't be - they have better ways of improving air quality than this.

Yeah, there are renovation work behind. See my photo in D3 forum. Editors in DPR has been deceived this time, and has attracted a lot of comment / mutual attack on environmental problems, far from the aim of DPR which is photography and only photography.

Mr. Alex Hofford is hiding something. I live in Hong Kong and deliberatly went to see what is happening there last Saturday. It is NOT a solution for tourists taking pictures when the air quality is bad. In fact, we do have many days of clear weather this Summer. I know cause I work in that area.

Now back to what Mr. Hofford is misleading us. They are boards to hide the renovation work behind. I have pictures to show it but can't post them here. I'll post them in Nikon D3 forum cause I shot with a D3s +Leica R 105-280/4.2.

Pcitures are deceiving sometime. But this time it is not the pictures. But the one who presents the pictures.
