If you have a Nikon D600 which has had the dirty sensor problem (where you're always having to clean the CCD and can't seem to get rid of the spots) Nikon have issued a service advisory and are now repairing it FOC.  It took them awhile but it's great to see they've admitted a fault in the camera and are rectifying it.

As I understand it, the "fix" is a complete new shutter assembly - probably the same one as used in the D610.
Good thing.
Nikon are also releasing a "D810" this month.  Rumour is that it has no AA filter, but supersedes both the D800 and D800E.

Pleased to say it all went very smoothly and you're right, the replace the mechanism (they say they'll replace the whole camera if that doesn't work).

Looking forward to seeing the reviews on the new release (I think it's out in July), it does sound pretty good.  And Panasonic are releases a Lumix with a larger sensor, so that could be a good 'in your pocket' camera when not carrying the SLR.
