Excerpt: So let's put the oil spatter issue to bed then: yes, my camera had the problem, yes, I sent it in to Nikon for a replacement shutter, and yes, this fixed the problem. Not Nikon's finest hour, certainly, but no reason to avoid the D600 today.
Excerpt: Everything is great but its autofocus could be faster. It's fast enough but not always fast enough to capture close moving subjects. Besides that, I love it. I mostly use a Sony A6000 for its size, but if I need better image quality in low light, I go with this.
Excerpt: The most important feature of this cam: popup flash, dual cards, very good DR, and indirectly, the 28-300mm lens with weight 800g. It did have a dust issue, which has been solved/repaired by Nikon Service without charge, even after its guarantee.

Summary: The quality of the enlargements are amazing. I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because right from day 1 there were what looked like oil spots on the sensor. These can be taken out quite easily during editing but they should not be there on a new product.
Excerpt: Likes: Great image quality, dynamic range, shadow recovery, iso performance Great handling, AF is quite good, reasonably fast / accurate Dislikes: ... if I had to complain about something it wouldn't be this camera. It works well. I sent it in for the free shutter upgrade.
Summary: This camera is not designed for the amateur. It replaces my D200 which I really liked except for it's 10MP DX sensor. The FX (so-called "full frame") sensor allows me to use lenses designed to work on later model Nikon 35mm cameras without any focal length conversions.
Excerpt: I love this camera but there are some things I really hate about it too. It's been everything I need as a semipro photographer. Pros: Amazing dynamic range Excellent noise performance at iso up to 1250 (some say more but I don't see it, I hate shooting over iso 400, 1250 would be max) 5.5fps at 24MP...
Summary: It's been a month since I purchased the Nikon D600 w/24-85 directly from Amazon on a "lightning deal" offered by them. Almost immediately, within 250 shots, all kinds of crud began showing up and not moving on the sensor?
Summary: This is a great value for a full frame camera. Functionally it works extremely well. If you are worried about the dust issue, I will say that yes it will probably happen to you. I bought a refurbished model and it still happened to me.
Excerpt: The D600 has had its share of bad publicity, therefore already replaced on the production line by the D610, which has another shutter, and a software tweak, or two. My background is a life in transport, security, illustration, and publishing, where a camera sometimes came in handy, so I have used...
