This is the same as yellow journalism.....

I was talking to a Nikon sales rep. today that seems to know some inside info on the goings on with the D600.

He thinks that Nikon is going to sweep the current dust issue under the rug by replacing the D600 with an "upgraded" D600S model that will be announced soon. That will fix the dust issue but have some upgrades to "save face" like the CAM3500, and 1/8000 shutter speed. This will make the new camera be distinctly different than the old D600 so they can quietly discontinue the D600. They will then keep the D600S at the same price drop the old D600 price to clear the stock and then discontinue them.

It seems that they can not fix the issue with dust in current D600. Even the new units are experiencing the issues even after they acknowledged that it is prone to "dusting." There is obviously a design flaw that precludes a simple fix.

If the OP wants to post factual information (i.e, the name of the Nikon rep and the store he/she was in and some other 'real' information) than that is one thing.  But to post innuendo and with a thread title claiming only: "D600 price drop soon. Also to be replaced by new D600s model" could even be considered legally as libelous.  Just because someone posts anonymously doesn't protect them from making false statements (whether implied as "true" or not.)  A corporation which feels it has been falsely represented in respect to any financial potential and future sales can come down hard on this sort of stuff.  It's why they have NDAs in the first place.

This reeks of typical tabloid journalism.  No facts and nothing very specific; instead just a sensational headline in order to ruffle feathers and sell newspapers.  It's called 'yellow journalism.' Next time, the OP might want to think first before they make a headline that was really only posted to grab attention to themselves and raise some irresponsible speculation.  DPReview is being equally complicit since these sorts of threads draw attention to their forums and creates revenue.
