Nikon Could Face Class Action Lawsuit For D600 Camera Issues

I guess it was only a matter of time before a lawsuit of some kind would be brought against Nikon for their faulty D600 full frame camera. It is being reported that US law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein is gearing up to file a class-action lawsuit against Nikon because of the widely reported sensor dust and oil issues. Many have complained that the issues of dust and oil on the sensor have resulted in unusable, spotted images.


Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein said the following about the lawsuit:

“Nikon did not identify the cause for the debris buildup on the D600 sensor, nor acknowledge, as many consumers have alleged, that this is a widespread problem with the camera. To eliminate the unwanted and distracting spots in their photos, D600 owners have had to repeatedly send the camera to service technicians for cleaning at great inconvenience and cost.”

There is still no definite answer that this lawsuit will actually go through, but I am sure it has gotten the attention of Nikon. Even with all of the problems, it has been reported that the company has replaced the shutter of cameras that have been sent in, but did not fix the issue 100%. Some people have been lucky enough to actually receive a new camera, sometimes even being replaced by the new Nikon D610. We’ll see what happens and how will Nikon handle the issue, but if you own a Nikon D600 and are having issues with it, reach out to Nikon’s customer service.
