Nikon to continue servicing D600, may replace if you get lucky

Nikon released earlier that they are going to continue to service your D600 even if it is already out of warranty period.  They may replace a D600 or equivalent model ( we are looking at D610) if the issue is persistent after a few services.

This is extremely beneficial for potential buyer from the 2nd hand market, you can be rest assured that you still get Nikon’s support even though if it is already over 1 year warranty period.

Here’s the official media release:

“With regard to the issue with which multiple granular black spots are reflected in images captured with the D600 digital SLR camera, Nikon sincerely apologizes for any concern and inconvenience suffered by D600 users, retailers, and all concerned.

Because Nikon takes this matter very seriously, we will continue to offer users of the D600 a special service with which cameras are inspected, cleaned, and if necessary, shutter and related components are replaced free of charge, even after the product warranty has expired. However, if a number of multiple granular black spots are still noticeable in images captured with a D600 upon which the above service has been performed several times, Nikon will replace it with a new D600 or an equivalent model.

Nikon will continue to work to improve the quality of its products and services even further.
We hope that you will continue to choose Nikon products for your photographic needs.”
