I hear it has interesting AF characteristics.

I think you mean the D800. And by "interesting," do you mean similar to the accuracy problems you have been describing with your 35-100 f2 and E-3?

I'm definitely not defending Nikon regarding the D800 AF mess. But the problems were mainly only with the left AF points, leaving a whole slew of workable points on even most of the "bad" cameras, and Nikon clearly have been working on the issues and people are reporting that there is now a fix for them -- which never happened with the E-3, hence your dilemma.

Not only that, it is a little easier to forgive the D800 issues when a good copy can do this:
