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.

Mastering the Nikon D610 is a new book from photographer Darrell Young.
“This book explores the features and capabilities of the camera in a way that far surpasses the user’s manual. It guides readers through the camera features with step-by-step setting adjustments; color illustrations; and detailed how, when, and why explanations for each option. Every button, dial, switch, and menu configuration setting is explored in a user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.”
Mastering the Nikon D610 retails for $39.95; however, is currently available for $28.03 from Amazon.com.
