Nikon D610

Nikon has finally take the official wraps off of the frequently-rumored Nikon D610, which serves as a direct replacement to the Nikon D600.

Can we confirm that the problem with the D600 is fixed or is the D610 confirmation that the D600 will forever get dust and oil. I feel really sorry for the D600 owners as it will be difficult to sell a used D600 at this point without giving it away. I'm so glad I returned mine as soon as I saw dust. This is Nikon saying to D600 owners, "yeah, the D600 has issues and no we are not going to fix your camera". The D600 should have an optional recall to swap the shutter mech out for the new one. Otherwise, Nikon is making one of the worst customer service decisions I have ever seen by releasing a new camera to fix the broken one, refusing to permanently fix the still under warranty D600, and driving D600 prices into the dirt by announcing a fixed D610 without fixing the D600 defects.

Exactly. I have owned Nikons since the FM2 but Nikon was a different company then. It has since been taken over by the bean counters. I never even considered looking at a Canon, but you can bet if Nikon doesn't come forward with a recall or a substantial trade in allowance for the now worthless D600....I will.

I sure am glad that I did not buy a D600!

I did upgrade from a D3100 to a D3200 pretty quickly after the D3200 came out. But I am watching this D600 situation closely. If Nikon does not give D600 users an upgrade option costing no more than $200 or so, then I will be very wary of ever buying a new camera model when it first comes out. I would want to wait a year first in case design flaws like this pop up.

Hopefully Nikon will do the right thing, as it is fun to have the latest model early after release!

Dont know about others but i have my d600 since july 2013 ...havd taken 4000 plus photos of nearly 180 mins plus problem of dust that too considering i broke my top cover on 5th day after buying coz i rough handled a nikon flash during a shoot. Used the broken top in very windy n rain situation and yet when i replaced the top in september 3 dust or oil on sensor...
so dont go gaga over this issue as some initial models/batches might have had the issue which they must have done a fix to prevent otber batches from recurring issues.....
enjoy my d600 cheers

I agree that N should have made service for D600 whereever needed. But in my case, the dust could be easily cleaned. I guess in time this issue will disappear as there is no 'dust producer'.
I guess this problem was a bit overblown, coz the amount of dust can not appear forever. I blow the chamber when it happened rarely, which i also did with older bodies. In all, the result of this body outweigh all the fear of this problem will make it worthless. Every real photographer will not be disturbed by trivial issues like this.
I was initially disappointed too, but not to the level of fearing it will not have good resale value.

The problem exists in earlier models also including my 800, 700, 7000 and 7100. I have using Nikons since 1958 do not enjoy becoming expert at wet cleaning!
