Buggy FoCal_1.6.0.141 ?

Although my D3 worked fine with previous versions of FoCal, in particular FoCal, I couldn't get FoCal_1.6.0.141 to work at all with my D3 now. So, then checking out my D800E I managed to determine an AFMA = -7, previously -5, for my 24-70 mm f/2.8 lens at about 2.5m for 50 mm focal length. I then chose a distance of 1.5m and a focal length of 24 mm and got this MPFT result:

I also took shots of the left, center, and right focus points with LV and VF focusing:

To me it looks like my D800E has the left autofocus problem and will be sent to Nikon for repair. My serial number starts with 3002xxx.

I must say I am also puzzled by the different size focus points CNX2 shows. Those are indicated by the red lines.

I appreciate constructive feedback. Thanks.

Regards, K-H.
