With regard to this dust issue, it seems that something is going on with this camera that disconcerting to say the least. And, the problem appears to require regular attention to keep from spoiling photos. That is disappointing that we should have to be so attentive to the camera, but it begs the question: "Is the camera reliable and will it last a reasonable period of time?" If the answer to the question is yes, then can we live with the problem? ..... Your thoughts?

+1.  That really is the question in a nutshell.  There appears to be variation in the number of shots taken before the sensor once again has spots on it and also in the type and size of the spotting.  I think the tolerance level of the users will be determinned by their application; socker dad, professional portrait and event photographer, or landscape artist etc., and their willingness to monitor and fix the spotting in post processing.  Honestly I don't think anyone shooting professionally will touch the D600 until the problem is eliminated completely.  Who wants to spend time monitoring and spotting images when they could be out making money instead.  I may be wrong.

Thank-you for asking the question.  I'm very interesting in hearing peoples honest opinions based on their own needs and expectations.
