Bedeviled by continuing complaints and Internet chatter about the D600's well-known dust-on-the-sensor problem, Nikon first introduced the D610 as an identifiable update free of the problem, and now it is offering to do a free clean/repair/replace for any customer's affected D600. Even shipping back and forth is on them.
Kinda like an automaker recall. Here's more.

Featured Comments from:
cgw: "The timing of Nikon's apparent 'generosity' had nothing to do with the threat of class action suits begun by law firms representing disgruntled D600 owners, right? Can't recall any camera maker ever being in the sights of possible litigation over their merch."
Michael Steinbach: "Nice. After I take a $800 bath to dump it and replace it with a D610. Just another Nikon debacle. You would think they would have learned a lesson after the SB900/SB910 fiasco, but no they keep thinking no one will be upset. Stupid Nikon mentality."
Mark Pfeifer: "My D600 went in for shutter replacement two weeks before Nikon made it free for everyone. To their credit, Nikon is reimbursing me the cost of the repair."
Scott: "I have a real skepticism that this will actually help. I had a D600 with the problem which I took to the Tokyo service center in person last year. They serviced it for free including replacing the shutter. Didn't help. I subsequently upgraded to a D800, and have been dust free and happy since. So I hope that Nikon has figured out the problem between then and now."
