Apart from the left AF issue, their is something else about the D800 / D800E AF which is causing it to back-focus with many lenses. I have both and they both need the exact same adjustment for any given lens.

My other lenses are FX and they have needed adjustments ranging from 0 to -17. This is my latest which is a DX for a walk-around lens but I find that even this needed fine tuning to focus properly. For fast lenses, I can understand but this is a very slow (f3.5 - f5.6) consumer grade (kit) lens and shouldn't need any adjustment unless it is really off.

Guess you had a cam before the D800s. How far off were the lenses on your old cams ?

anyway ... thanks for posting.
The more I see such posts the less I want the D800 to be honest.
