I also use Focal to calibrate my 5DMKII

First off, sorry to hear you're having problems with your new D800

My camera AF is far from being perfect. In fact, the most important improvement on the new 5DMKIII has been pecisely its AF system.

So, what I do is to shoot up to 20 tests in a row to counterpart the AF system tolerances. The most repeated result becomes my AFMA setting.

The tolerances of your camera should be much norrower, so you chart may be showing you have that bloody issue.

I suggest repeating the test several times to ensure consistency, and if you get consistent result similar to the one here, use your warranty.

I'm amazed at some of the comments you're getting. The fact you are invested in nikon apparenttly has not bought you a ticket to express your opinion, or ask for advice. People can be so ridiculously in awe of their toys that they can't accept that someone may be having an issue.

Good luck, and I hope nikon works it out quickly and nicely.
