And he goes on to say that his issues pertain to Nikon AF-S ƒ 1.4 lenses.

Fine - so it focuses acceptably some of the time! LOL! How very handy.

1. It is given that he states he gets consistent results within 80 feet
2. His argument appears to point the finger at the F1.4 lenses.

In the words of Loyd Chambers - the D800's AF system "lacks precision".

Not accuracy and only then, it "lacks precision" on the 24-85 1,4 primes only.

Not sure how you could consider that to be class leading when other cameras can, and do, do better.

I have yet to see better images from any other camera.
