Summary: The dust issue continues to reoccur OVER and OVER. Local camera shop will clean sensor for $90. EACH TIME this happens I need to fork over $90??? And it happens frequently. Every 1000 shots or so.
Summary: I purchased the D600 body about a month ago. I had used all my savings that I have been saving for about 2 years. I was very excited to buy a full frame camera after having used D3000 for about 5 years of my life.

Summary: I was expecting that dirty sensor issue was limited to only few cameras. It looks that I was mistaken. Beside purchasing camera from Amazon I did go to BestBuy an Costco and cameras from all places were showing dirt on their sensors.
