After  much anguish over dust/oil  hoo-ha I'd read here and all over the net, I just went with the more positive reports and my own past positive experiences with Nikon over 20 years and ordered from B&H.

Did the recommended sky shot test for potential dirty sensor problems and found only one odd, small but very dark bit that appeared in the lower center. That was gone with a couple of whiffs from a Giotto bulb blower. No corner or other dust bits or signs of oil and no wet cleaning/swabs etc. needed...as yet.

Bought with 32 & 16 GB SanDisk Extreme SDHC-1, 300X cards, extra battery and ML-L3 remote.

Will get to first shooting tomorrow as I'm resting a bad knee and will post further experiences as I go.

Thanks to all those who convinced me to go for it!

All the best,


Congrats. My D600 came in the mail today. Charging the battery now & will probably take some photos tomorrow :}
