Food for thought about the seriousness of this problem;

1. Nikon showrooms are a great place to showcase this issue, just try it with a wide-angle lens on one of those big bright yellow nikon murals lighted by tungsten lamps.

2. It's not just the color temperature, any object that is significantly saturated red/orange will result in back-focus. I stay in Chinatown in Singapore, btw, and that 1 street photography session 2 days back was a good test.

3. If you're a wedding photographer who shoot in dim tungsten or 2800k lamps, your life is going to be difficult with the D600.

That is very upsetting indeed...I wonder how many have this...
