To be honest, I am a little surprised that this seemed to slip through Nikon quality control. Dust, oil, sticky shutter and so on. I would have definitely thought this was accidental or bad samples if it was just a hand full of customers. It doesn't certainly doesn't seem so!! These issues seem to be reported at several vendor and review sites by several people!! I really was waiting for something like D600 for long. Now I feel so despondent to drop 2 grand on it. I would not bat an eyelid if the Quality was good. Average customer rating across popular multiple sites is like 3.5 out of 5!! My question is should I? Any news that these issues have gotten Nikon attention? Can any recent buyers confirm that their cameras have had no such issues? Your input would really help. Thank you.
