Addendum: the problem goes away if you change light metering?

Korean users have reported same problem.

With D800 + 24-70N at 48mm F2.8 1/800s

He changed the photo in his post. Same lens at 48mm ISO100 1/160s F5

In this case D800 + 60/2.8 macro reveals same problem.

In other posts this guy says the problem goes away if you change light metering, that is matrix, center weighted and spot.

D800 AF issue may not be confined to wide angle lenses.

Decision, decision, we are the slaves of decisions we made inadvertently.

May God forgive us our imperfections!

Dust to dust, what on earth are we entitled to claim?
