Summary: First, Amazon did a great job delivering this product - no complaints there. The Nikon D600 is a product with great potential, but because of the oil spatter on the sensor, is an unreliable and disappointing product.
Be forewarned...Do NOT buy this camera...unless you understand its problem!

Summary: First, I am a serious photographer, and a long time Nikon shooter. I shoot hundreds of photographs every day, and I use all of the features on the camera. In other wods, I wanted this camera for very specific reasons, and I did my research before hand.
Summary: had this camera in repair more time than i had it using it. i am not a professional photographer, and for this very reason autofocus is important to me. it did quit unexpectedly, and after contacting Nikon support, i had to send the body of the camera, at my expenses to Nikon in California, there it...
Summary: Output is really awesome and very good for low light photography. I had a trip and shutter counted nearly 560, after reaching home tested for the dust in sensor and was shocked to see few. Then ran over the photos i took and found few spots.
Summary: Well I had a third replacement from Amazon . All three had spots on the sensors out of the box . Rocket blower could remove some but not all of them . With the new D7100 on its way ..I wonder why didn't they provide the 51 pt focusing on D600?
Summary: Aside for the spot problem (dust or oil - I haven't determined which yet), this camera is fantastic. However, the spot problem is very much a problem. I bought my D600 after my D40 was stolen and was extremely excited about the huge upgrade.
Summary: The camera body has been ok good. It has so many options and means of customization of buttons that it would take a very long time to fully master all of its features, and the interface would make a techie annoyed, but if you don't have time the default settings work ok.
Summary: I love this camera...but... I bought this camera through a local camera shop for my wife. It is an awesome camera. With the 24-85 mm kit lens it takes beautiful photos in a wide range of conditions. Unfortunately what followed soured our experience considerably.
