Thanks Robert, Helpful photos.

I packed the lens up to send back, and will have a better look at the camera. You are of course correct, the answer lies in one or the other.

My D800 edge focus was perfect out of the box thank goodness. Will examine my options now.

I would expect perfect focus in live view which didn't happen in live view with the Nikon 85
