D800 List of Issues

I did a quick look on the internet wanting to compile a simple list of the current issues with the D800. This is what I came up with:

Focus points issues; specifically left side
lockup issue
viewfinder alignment issue
LCD has a green cast
potential issues while tethered (to laptop/computer)
potential issues with CLS (SB600, SB700, SB800)

As far as the CLS goes, the test I saw in a video did not demonstrate the SB900 or SB910. It did show the differences between the D800 versus a D300s. From what I saw, it would definitely be an issue for users of CLS. I am sure a firmware update on a SB900/SB910 would fix those flashes.

LCD Green Cast / Tethered / CLS are shown/commented at this link.

Does anyone else have anything else to add to this list?

P.S. Not looking for the flamers. Just trying to get a complete list.
