    I see the UK response is not so positive, very vaguely worded

    I think that they finally read the writing on the wall. This will effectively negate any lawsuits that might be in the making. I would think that it should help the resell value of the D600 also.

    It is nice to see them finally doing something about it. It is just sad that it had to come to ambulance chasers and lawsuits opening their eyes.

    I am wondering if their engineers have just now come up with a true "Fix" ?

    Are you implying that the D600 is improperly sealed? Do you have any evidence of this other than Nikon going to "D800 style body seals" on the D610?

    The shutter replacement indeed solves the problem. There was never a "dust problem", only the fact that normal dust common to every DSLR was not easily blown from the sensor due to the presence of the oil. Since getting a proper shutter I will tell you that I've had to clean my D800 more often than my D600, even though the D600 gets about twice as many clicks and has supposedly inferior seals. Fact is, I change lenses on the 800 far more often, which is something photographers do with cameras, and dust gets in. As Nikon said truthfully in their otherwise blatant refusal to cop to the real problem with the D600, dust is a normal part of owning a camera like this. It's just supposed to go away more times than not with a bulb blower. That was the problem, and it's fixed with the shutter.

    I think that they were doing this behind the scenes even before this news. The response to the first lawsuit filing in California just forced the response in the open. I haven't heard of one person contacting Nikon outside of warranty being turned away, and there have actually been posts here about them making it right outside of warranty periods.

    Engineers "fixed" it with the D610 shutter mechanism. Whether they're putting D610 shutters in D600s or have simply managed to get the old shutter manufactured correctly I do not know, but there's nothing in what I read that says that the new "fix" is any different than what I experienced - you can keep shipping it back and we'll replace it for free until you get one that works properly/ I'm not saying that's the case, but who knows? Either way, what they're saying is that no one gets stuck with a shutter that doesn't perform the way it's supposed to, regardless of how long you've had it.
