If the shutter manufacturing line (3rd party?) changed one small parameter, it could have caused this whole thing and a whole batch of bad shutters may have left the lines and made it into our cameras. The size of the issue would then be related to how many they made in a single run and when they discovered the problem.

Again, having spent some time in manufacturing, this is the most likely scenario in my mind.

This is a sane opinion. While I was dreadfully disappointed in my D600's urge to spray oil like a leaky hydraulic hose, my friend's D600 is perfectly fine and has been since day 1. Luck of the draw, I got one of the really bad ones. Oil probelm, it was sent in, refurbished, I bought it, had nothing but problems, sent it in again with almost 9,000 clicks on the clock and still able to coat the upper left side of the sensor in 100 shots after a clean.

Just a nit - it's actually the lower right side, yes?
