Re: OK - here we go - a complete OTHER comparison!

Honestly, I think your camera is fine. I don't see the difference in these photos.

Here we go:

D3s and D800 - SAME lens, SAME tripod, SAME cable release, SAME time, SAME room...all the same - iso 200, f4.0 with the 70-200mm lens:

Compare this two shots...only error that happened two me - 130mm vs 135mm...but I am sure that does make i a false comparison.

This D800 had a strong backfocus...AF-finetuning made it better but as to be seen did not come close to D3s...and EVERY other AF-point has been worse on D800.

By the way - BOTH we the very best AF-point, single AF-Point, center!
