Re: D800 AF problem can be fixed

I think the problem is definitely there and it is not just a left side AF issue. I think it is calibration of the AF system on a whole lot of D800/D800E's (maybe all of them).

I have a D800 and an E and both require large negative adjustments across most of my lenses (incidentally both happen to need the same).

These adjustments range from 0 to -20 - this cannot be normal behavior for the camera.

Fortunately, I did not have the left AF issue. I am reluctant to let Nikon adjust my AF for because (i) I would have to fine tune all of my lenses again; (ii) I don't have enough faith or trust in their competence to not screw things up further.
