No it did not go off, the spots were increasing and the replaced camera also had the same issue, so returned it and looking for other models

I don't know for sure. I sent my camera to Nikon Factory Service. They kept it for several weeks because they ordered parts that were in short supply.

I sent my camera to Nikon Factory Service. They kept it for several weeks because they ordered parts that were in short supply. When all was said and done, they had replaced the shutter and sensor. Nikon considered it a major repair. I am hoping the shutter they installed was modified in some way as I believe that the old shutter was ill-fitting or over-lubricated. Nikon says very little about a problem. They just fix it and itemize that parts they installed. I just got it back so I haven't had a chance to really test it, but I will be glad to let you know how the camera is performing. Nikon makes excellent products, so this was probably just a design error that got past the engineers. The repair is guaranteed for six months. The D600 is an excellent camera and a great price, way ahead of anything else out there. If Nikon fixes this issue, I am sure you will be selling the finest camera available for the money that can do just about anything. see less I don't know for sure.

For now I do not think it was completely resolved, I still have some very very small points in the upper left corner, barely visible even at f/22 but I am unable to blow them off.

The thing is that after the Nikon sensor clean I only got those and nothing more so I am still waiting to see what happens in the following weeks and I will eventually send the camera back for one more cleaning and hoping that I am done with the spots problem, I mean at least so that I do not get more than normal dust that I can just blow it off. see less For now I do not think it was completely resolved, I still have some very very small points in the upper left corner, barely visible even at f/22 but I am unable to blow them off.

I have heard about this problem from other reviewers. I have not had any issue what-so-ever with this problem. We have shot quite a bit of video with the camera and have taken it all over the place including a cruise, weekend getaways, etc, etc...and no issues what-so-ever.

It seems to reduce by 5000 shots or so. Since Nikon acknowledged the problem, free sensor cleaning has been offered. If the problem re-occurs twice, they have even been known to replace the shutter or even the whole camera. If the problem still occurred with the current build, I'm sure they would never replace.

I would not worry about it even if it isn't solved. It is not a big deal. I bought one of the early ones late in 2012 and read about the spots a few days later.

Glad it happened this way otherwise some of the hysterical over reactions of people would have put me off buying the best camera I ever had. I had my cleaned after about 2000 shots, no charge. Then I went to work in Maldives where I could not get it cleaned and after 6000 additional shots the sensor was very spotted, but nothing you would notice unless you shoot at f16 or a smaller aperture. And how often do you do that? Had the sensor cleaned in Malaysia, again free of charge and since then there has been no problem whatsoever. Sensors get dirty. It is not a big deal. Have it cleaned or clean it yourself but do not let the ranting comments here from spoiled consumers put you off. Is it a problem - yes. It it a deal-breaker - no. This is a great tool with a minor flaw that has an easy solution. read proper reviews on dpreview or DXO mark. They don't even mention the issue because it is a non issue. see less I would not worry about it even if it isn't solved. It is not a big deal.

I'm getting close to my 1k pictures. There is no dust spots so far. Let's hope for the best. The camera is an outstanding peace of technology.
