I received D800E #30063XX two days ago from PCNation.

No left sided AF issue, tested with 50mm f/1.8 AF, 24mm f/2.8 AFD, 20mm f/2.8 AFD.

Both right and left side sensors are equally just a hair less sharp than the central sensor, which is critically sharp, exposure after exposure, defocusing the lens each time. The right and left sides vary between critically sharp and just the slightest bit off with repeated exposures.

Normal AF behavior.

I didn't bother to test with longer lenses, have no zooms to test.

If I start talking about this camera, I'll just start gushing.

Except about the way it fits my hand. My older Fuji S2 Pro which was the Nikon N80 body has much better ergonomics about the way the camera body is molded under the thumb area. I have "medium" sized hands and the older camera has a much deeper "thumb impression" and is more shallow front to back. The D800E feels more like a brick where the hand wraps around. But the rubberized covering feels better. It's something one needs to get used to.

Great camera.
