I wonder why this obssession with the D800 here. They are all cameras/tools. Possibly Canon has jumped ahead after 5 years behind re AF, next Nikon will try to match it, and so on. Hyperbole is the fanboy's way of speaking, certainly not the pro's or serious amateur's. It's doubtful that an AF system that had been working well until yesterday suddenly is as faulty as some are trying to portray it.

Congrats to Canon and to their users, the 1Dx and the 5D3 look like great cameras so far.
