Live view left sensor 14mm at f2.8

A question - why do you think Nikon caution using a symmetrical pattern autofocus target can cause focus issues using phase detect autofocus (D800 page 100) - and rely on this type of target to test phase detect AF?

Liveview uses a different autofocus system which works well with some types of subject where phase detect may be inaccurate, and vice versa

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