Odd D800E focus issue
Nov 22, 2012

Just wondering if anyone else has run into this one...
I have an early D800E, received in May 2012. It came with the left focus issue, I returned it to Melville and that was corrected fairly quickly.
In reviewing some shots this morning, I noticed many shots were slightly out of focus, and thought I might need to fine tune my 50mm f1.4 G.
Upon investigation, this is what I am encountering-- using AF-S, single point (center)-- when focusing from near to far  (lens position at closest focus distance to start), lens focus seems dead on. Tested with multiple lenses on a spyder lens cal. However, when focusing from far to near (lens starting point at infinity and then focusing closer), I am getting a consistent back focus, across all the lenses I tested.
Anyone else encountered this?
