When I explained how bad Canon 5dmk2 AF was there were many fanboys who screamed loudly. The variations were large in a series of images
When Rob G talked about 1dmk3 poor AF it was the same thing

I have a D800 since maj and have had access to also a 800E during the summer, none of these has incorrect AF.

Regarding shooting Canons 85/1,2mk2 without any variations at 1,2 = thats impossible, nor the lens AFmotor or the camera AF system has better tolerance than F 2.8, possibly 2.0 at right conditions .

Try to that with 50/1, 4 where the motor ratio and imprecise construction makes its impossible to get a series of crisp pictures = focal plane at the absolutely same place

We heave known for months now that despite having a great sensor the D800 is not a great camera, the focus system is but one reason.

But for Lloyd, one of the most fervent Nikon supporters in the world to actually come out and tell the truth about it is wow... just wow... that is a very strong statement, it's Ashton Kutcher HUGE.

Nikon's failure to execute a proper camera design with the D800 is EPIC.

I can hear wailing and gnashing of teeth of the Nikon fanboi trolls who constantly pollute this forum from a mile away. This one will be fun unless it gets drowned in the denial.
