Hi Inasir

When I bought mine about a Month ago, even at +20 is was still totally out so I had to take it to Nikon with my body, but after they 'recalibrated' my body, is was out again so take again both to them.

Now I can get decent picture (but not tack sharp) when using central AF with an AF Tune value of +5 at 70 and +2 at 24. But after the calibration of the D800 AF points, the left and right AF points are totally out.

So, it is probably a good lens according to a lot a review, but due the the D800 issues that I have had from the very beginning, it does not do good on my body. However, even Nikon recognize the lens was totally out on their test body when I brought it there the first time, proving that there is a lot of improvement needed in Nikon quality control process...

Cheers

Phil
