On my D4, about 10,000 where as I cleaned about 70 spots off and I have not seen any oil spots since then and I am at nearly 17,000 clicks. It looks like this issue is being resolved... to the benefit of those who have a D600....
Dirty Sensor from New on D600?(103 posts) (41 voices)
Proudgeek has it exactly, some Nikon apprentice likes to munch his lunch on the assembly line and is a bit of a messy eater when he gets to the salad dressing......
I've slowly been accumulating spots on my D600 sensor, but these haven't been a major issue unless i'm taking shots of a uniform background.
Today though, about 10k actuations in my mirror seems jammed or locked and isn't raising properly/fully when shooting. Using the "lock mirror up" sometimes gets it about halfway and sometimes not at all. Bummer.
Its under warranty and I'll take it in tomorrow, but for a 6 week old camera that hasn't been knocked around it's frustrating -- but serves me right for being an early adopter, i guess.
Posting here as it seems potentially related to the the mirror box issues that are referenced earlier in this thread as a likely cause of dust/oil. Or i could just have a dud, or have accidentally dinged it without noticing.
