If the camera takes good images then the scratch is not causing any type of problem. I have a good respect for Nikon, but never have been into micro inspecting any camera device. This thread has gone on for at least three pages and there is not a shred of evidence that the same scratches or whatever are causing any sort of problem.

Let's just say I disagree with you. If there is a scratch inside the mirror chamber than that migt cause flare or reflection. You might or mignt not see it in your images and might even suspect the lens or the filter because it will definitely not cause constant problems, just some times depending on the angle of light. There is a good reason why the mirror box is painted that way, not just for the cool look.

The fact that you never inspected your camera is totally irrelevant to the readers.

BTW, wouldn't you care if a brand new car you just bought had a scratch on the paint? ...and in that case it would definitely not have anything to do with the function of the car, as opposed to this case with a camera.

I used to work for car dealers. I hate to tell you this, but just about every new car has had a scratch (or a lot more) either buffed out, or touched up. And -- this was expensive European luxury cars that got delivered in special trucks and whatnot.

That's OK, I won't buy those and anyway, I think it depends which country you are talking about and which dealer. Surly not everyone is the same...

This is being blown way out of proportion -- if you're worried about flare, take a black sharpie and make it black.

OK, if you think so, but let's agree about one thing that is that we disagree. I don't have the D600 and my D800 is free of any visible scratch but if it would have I would not hesitate to send it in and let Nikon fix it. Touch up paint or whatever, as long as it is done by them and documented by them so that the warranty is still valid.
