Sample of "a few" - hmmm
  • firstly I'd be wary of drawing any conclusions from a sample of "a few". Let's say a minimum would be around 20

  • secondly there will be an enormous bias: people happy with their D800 will shut up and photograph, vs. people unhappy will lend their cameras for further testing

  • thirdly, this camera is too cheap. By which I mean that too many hobbyists can afford it, including people who will potentially anguish about something which is born out of geometry, or not realise that if a lens needs a -7 AF micro-adjust on one body, it might need +12 on another body and that's simply normal

At the end of the day, here is what I note: funny how there are so many "idiots" (they must be idiots, right, if we are to believe that ludicrous figure of 50% bad cameras?) buying this thing.
