My Nikon Nightmare – The D600 (Part 3)

When will this nightmare end!?!?  Be sure to read my previous 2 posts to get fully up to speed.

Bedfords Camera in Little Rock responded quickly to my last post and promised to take care of everything for me.  John actually emailed me on Thanksgiving Day which was way above and beyond the call of duty!  Yay!  They agreed to swap me a different D600 so I drove to Little Rock again.  We took out 3 different D600s and took some test shots outside against the blue sky.  Guess what… ALL THREE HAD SENSOR DUST ALREADY!  So, the assistant manager, Denver (obviously dismayed with Nikon at this point), decided they would send their D600s back to Nikon and request a new batch.  On Monday, I got the call from Denver that the new batch of D600s were in so I drove back to Little Rock… again.



My Nikon Nightmare – the D600 (Part 2)

This is a continuation of my ongoing problems with my Nikon D600 which has had dust on the sensor since I bought it.  Read up on the other related posts using these links:

So, after contacting Bedfords about the problem, they decided to clean the sensor for free.  I was leery about this because how would this fix the overall problem that the dust spots seem to be coming from contamination within the camera?  I’m not switching lenses much so I’m pretty sure the dust isn’t from outside.  The people at Bedfords have been nice, but they tried to explain that this just wasn’t likely.  Denver, an assistant manager, thinks it comes from the technique being used to switch lenses, the environment from when I’m changing the lens, etc. I guess that is usually the case with dust, but I’m trying to explain to them that this is NOT the case with me and many others seem to have the same problem.
