Dust issue with Nikon D600

The new Nikon D600 SLR seems to be suffering from an issue with dust on the sensor. Kyle Clements has posted a timelapse video onto YouTube showing significant dust accumulation on a brand new camera’s sensor. The key issue is not the dust per se, but the fact that the dust is coming from inside the camera. During the timelapse, the lens is not removed from the camera. When approached on the issue, Nikon USA gave the following statement:

Measures to reduce effects of dust or foreign matter are optimized for each model. Therefore, the dust reduction system’s internal mechanism varies with each model,” the Nikon statement reads. “If the effects of dust or foreign matter on photographs become bothersome, customers are encouraged to consult their local Nikon service center.”
