Re: I didn't know about the issue when I first saw it

Before I knew anything about a focus issue a friend, an early adopter, got a D800. He gave it to me to play with and I noticed right off that it was focusing with a prime lens about 1" off for every 48" distance. I figured, "It needs a fine adjustment for the lens on it." The friend ended up changing the camera three times, finally getting one that didn't have the focus issue. It would be nice to know if tolerance variation due to cost constraints in design are responsible for this, like in the old days when lenses were done by hand and only the most expensive could be guaranteed as consistent.

There has no report of such problem as you described.
