Nikon has yet to admit any defect with the D600 despite a plethora of reports concerning a defective shutter mechanism. Even when the D610 was announced (way too early as a proper replacement for the D600), Nikon made no mention of the shutter defect. However, Nikon highlighted a new, improved shutter as a feature of the D610.
Now, it appears that some Nikon D600 owners who send their cameras in for cleaning are getting brand new Nikon D610 cameras back with little or no cost to the user. (Update: Nikon later confirmed that all service inquiries are handled on a case-by-case basis, but provided no direct response to the D610 and D600 shutter mechanism debacle. See official statement below.) [click to continue…]

Canon reached the 90 million lens mark in May 2013. Any day now, I expect to see an announcement from Canon that it has reach the 100 million lens milestone in less than 30 years since the EF mount was introduced in 1987. It seems that Canon is cranking out 10 million lenses every 8-9 months, while it takes Nikon about a year to do the same. While Canon clearly has the edge, it is mind-boggling to think about just how big these giants are in the world of photography.
