    Don't know how much cleaning costs - assuming $25-$50 and at the rate i use it, no more than 3 per year

    What kind of proof do you need?

    Of course the returned set will be sold again. What's the arrangement, I'm not sure - repackage them again or refurbrish or what, that's either their internal arrangement or arrangement with Nikon USA. If not they destroy the set or sell as 2nd hand and make huge losses?

    Correct me if I am wrong. I also thinking of getting one.
    Set up tripod, whack 3000 shots, send for cleaning one time, and you're golden.

    Just wonder the shutter count can be reset by SC. If yes, then we will think that is a new set when checking.

    Good idea, but not going to do it for me. Bought one in Dec, about 500 shots now. Think I'll whack i to 3000-4000 shots and once I return after my March holiday trip (which will involve lots of lens changing under cold temperature), sent it for a good cleaning

    whack!!!
    Then Why don't you suggest to nikon. Ask them to whack 3000 shots, clean it and then sell the set to us at a lower price.

    Bro recommend you clean already then go for trip. At least your first 1-2 days shot don't need cloning of dust. After come back send in again. That's what I did.

    It's free anyway, exclusive only to D600 owners

    Actually so far the dusts doesn't appear on my photos. I typically shoot at f/9 range with strobes, hardly on f/11 and almost never on f/16. I did a dust check on f/22 against white wall, there's a few specks at the corners though, but not appearing on my usual f/9 and below range

    But let's say if I hit 3000 before the trip.. I'll just send it in if I have the time.. pray that they settle it fast. Sucks that they don't even do half day for Saturday.

    Its illegal in the US to sell a used piece as new. No major retailer will risk that. These returned goods are usually sold as seconds or refurbished goods at a cheaper price. I've bought two such cameras from B&H with a 40-50% discount, but they were clearly marked as demo or refurbished pieces & didnt come with the gold box.

    Ah I see. If that's so, doesn't that made them suffer losses? I can't imagine running my business allowing all sorts of returns and later, I have to refurbish them and sell as refurbish sets at a huge discount.

    Even salvaging the parts for reuse in production line or future repair sounds like a better plan than destroy...

    which is why many sellers charge a restocking fee for returns. Usually 15%.

    Maybe not losses.. just less profits.

    Wonder if I can offer to clean for half of what Nikon does.

    It's seriously not that hard to clean a sensor.

    I see. Seems nice for consumers though, but doesn't seem good for businesses. No wonder SG don't have.

    Well, having lived in western countries for the greater part of my younger years, I come to realizxe why it will not work in Asia.

    It is more of a honor system over there, will it work over here? Many folks will treat it like a cheap rental service.

    I would agree. I'm sure that there's many many cheapos out there who will just abuse this system.

    Or those itchy hands who doesn't know what they are buying, buy already don't like or feels that it sucks (maybe when it's they who sucked) and then return the goods during the return period.
