Nikon Stands Behind Their D600 by Offering Free Repairs
Nikon stands behind their D600 by offering free repairs for all those who want one. Seems many folks have experienced issues with their D600 cameras producing an unusual amount of dust and even oil spots on the cameras sensor. This was a big issue for many and in fact, Nikon actually brought out the D610 with almost no new changes or additions other than an updated mirror box that allegedly took care of this issue Nikon shooters were complaining about. I’ve had a D600 since it was first released and though I too had spots on my sensor, I just chalked it up to wear and tear and had my local camera shop clean it for me a couple of times.
I have to say I’m not sure this was as big of a deal as many made it out to be or at least it wasn’t for me. It’s amazing how the Internet can steamroll for both good and bad. With this recall Nikon has finally offered to take care of the problem and offer a camera repair for all who want the fix. Some are suggesting a potential class action suit was the impetus for their decision to take care of their customers. I have to say the class action suit was just getting started but it had some momentum. Then we see this offer. Seems pretty likely it must have had some influence.
So how many Explorer’s had this oil and dust problem? Any readers who want to chime in – I would love to hear how many of you were affected and what you think about this offer from Nikon. Add your voice.
