Re: Bummed, but returning D600

You're over reacting.  That's at f/16 - right where it should be to show dust bunnies and oil spots.  But you don't shoot at f/16 routinely.  Or, if you're looking for the best possible image, you shouldn't shoot at f/16.

Shoot your test pic at f/5.6 and you won't see much.  Even if you really, really want to shoot at f/16, all you have to do is to wet clean the sensor correctly.  All of your spots are on the edge - that's the hardest spot to get right but with some practice it isn't difficult at all.

Your dealer really should give you the first cleaning free, however.  Most dealers that I've talked to will do it for the first couple of times on a brand new camera.  Makes you come into the store and look at all those important photographic gizmos that you most certainly need.
