D800: Update on left-focusing issue
Apr 17, 2013

Hi all,

I just wanted to share my experience with the recent purchase of the Nikon D800 in the UK, as there might be people out there holding off buying the camera until they get some reassurance that the left-focusing issue is now a thing of the past.

I bought mine on Amazon UK a week ago and tested it thoroughly for three days with different focus charts, before and after updating it with the latest firmware. I am pleased to report that the autofocus works perfectly and I could not be more happy about the camera.

Obviously I am not suggesting the issue is now resolved, I just wanted to share with you my own experience with this camera. For your information, the serial number of my D800 is 6098xxx.
