I was concerned about auto focus issues with the D800, so I did some tests. I was not totally convinced all was well so I tried testing manual focus results. That was not at all impressive, and when compared with my D700 (exact same test and conditions) the D700 clearly showed up the issue on the D800. My D800 is clearly focusing fowards the back - even when manually focused. The D700 is spot for the same test.

You can see my results here:
Feedback welcome.

Did you happen to use the green dot to determine when the subject was in focus?
