Something's wrong with my D4, I'm sure of it... The focusing is off... Yes my "test" was a bad sample, the focus on the D4box label was at a flat angle, still a single point, thus if off focus the whole label would be unsharp ("soft").

I then tried to focus at a single letter on the label while at an angle... The D3 shot spot on what I was aiming for, the D4 mostly overshot (focused back)...

As for clarity and detail of the focused areas, I wonder why they bothered making it 16mp's? I honestly see no improvement on image quality.

After reading most comments on this thread. It seems ALL pro photos AF Fine Tune their cameras/lens all the time. I think it's better to not have to do this, IMO, and also according to the manual, this is not normal operations... Which means u all got junk cameras...
