Thom's recent post on D800: It doesn't end
Aug 21, 2012

He has an update on the first page, posted yesterday:

It starts like this:

"It Doesn't End

August 20 (commentary)--While I might have been quiet about the D800 last week, the number of people contacting me about their problems with that camera hasn't really abated. Besides the left sensor AF problem, I've gotten five different reports of the 10-pin connector simply disappearing into the body the first time someone tried to connect to it. Add to that many "it came back with different focus issues" problems, and my In Box was just as full last week as the previous weeks."

Then he has a long discussion about typical buyers/users (where he indicates many of the issues are user related), then he ends with:

"The good news is that it's just another of those time = reward scenarios. The more energy you put into mastering the nuances of the D800, the more you'll be rewarded. Because that's still the bottom line here: despite all the "doesn't focus right" and other QC complaints, the D800 is capable of creating stunning images. Personally, I'm going to work more on dominating my D800 than having it dominate me. When I shoot with it, I'm tightening my shooting habits a bit, and it shows. "
