Re: D800 focus with 1.4 prime lenses is very variable and inaccurate

I'm the OP of this thread. I believe now that this is a fundamental issue with this camera.

I too have had the same issue as Primeshooter.

One interesting thing in the thread above is the concept of the AF points being out of alignment. This theory could explain the hit or miss of the AF at any f-stop. My example was shot at 5.6.

I'm going to contact Nikon and see if this can me an issue. Maybe we all should do so, so that Nikon is aware of this issue.
