Testing AF points on my D800 with 85mm f1.4G

With all this talk of left hand AF, and some with right hand AF, points showing issues, I decided to see if my D800 had the same issues. Here are a few test shots of my favourite, and lets face it, only, willing subject, our dalmatian. However, I order to get her to cooperate, there were vast amounts of bribery to be had in the form of dog treats.

I used the 85mm f1.4G for the test and this is purely a test of the AF. In each case, I focused on the corresponding eye that the AF point was near.
