3. Don't settle! Don't send back to Nikon for a fix. Brand new means it works as advertised. This has not been my experience with the total of 10 D800's I have tested in the last year.

4. DO NOT get camera envy thinking that the D800 is so awesome that you HAVE to have it! Older generation cameras (D700, d3x) are great cameras. The hassle with Nikon's QC is not worth it.

Wow, I am gobsmacked that cameras with focus issues are being released as we speak. I bought mine last June, I sent it back to Nikon AU a few weeks ago and it came back last week properly fixed.

So it is a big sigh of relief for me.
