The D800 has the better AF specification, especially using the central AF points. Whether together with the other D800 differences, the price difference is worthwhile is for each photographer to decide.

On D800 AF "issues" so far I make it 95 posting images at dpreview complaining about D800 AF - with images showing they did not test sensibly  - and no images posted using a test target likely to reasonably confirm an AF fault.

Eight months after launch Nikon have not issued any formal guidance. Either, as some proclaim, Nikon have abandoned good customer service, - or maybe - sensibly tested - there is a lot more talk about D800 AF faults than there are D800's with an AF issue to talk about.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
