Buy a D800 - even after reading all the negative stuff?

Yes, it's the best Canon camera ever!

Ok, the 1Dx may be better for some stuff - but for my work is the 5DIII very good.
After using it some month I still LOVE it!

So what about the negative stuff?

It's mainly propaganda - when I ONLY read this CANON forum I would think the Nikon D800 is a perfect cam and the 5DIII has so many problems ...

If you check this forum:

Today we have this top headlines:
D800 - AF issues worse than espected
My D800 focus points have a mind of their own...
Nikon still sending out faulty D800s
The D800 worse release for Nikon ever?
D800 Noise at higher ISO's

Is the 5DIII perfect?

Points to improve:
1) Selected AF points not so good visible (Firmware update?)
2) Auto ISO 1/250 min (should be 1/2000) (Firmware update?)
3) Auto ISO 1/focal length (should have a selectable factor) (Firmware update?)
