Just for reference, this is the 85D @1.6 around 60ft shot thru a window, it's not a D800

Yes and that AF is the precursor to the D800.

Its a D3 and it shoots circles (focus wise) around the 800 even though its 4 yrs old now. I shot the 800 with all my lens, not even close.

I have a D700 (same as teh D3 in every respect) and the D800 smokes it. Maybe you had a bad camera or bad lenses.

BTW. That image was only 960 pixels. It could have been out of focus and it wouldn't matter at that resolution.

I feel a D4x on the horizon.

Not likely. The D3X was a joke and the D800 has already filled the niche.
