Re: D800 Firmware Update Focus Improvement!
In reply to Shotcents, Apr 3, 2013

There have been cases here where left AF would be off with lenses OTHER than the super fast primes. I've read about left AF troubles with a variety of different lenses and in lighting other than tungsten/indoor. While this firmware update may have solved the camera's ability to focus these fast primes in more varied lighting conditions, that does not necessarily mean that the accuracy of the left AF point is any better.

I'm curious about those people who had left AF issues with other than F1.4/1.8 prime lenses, and whether this firmware update improved the accuracy of the left AF point (not just acquiring focus, but doing so accurately).
