If you have the D800 AF defect, under set conditions, the left will always be worse that the right bank. Not just some of the time.  Conditions are wide fast lens wide open,

The issue is not at all restricted to "wide fast" lenses. Unless you are counting 2.8 as "fast." It happens with all the 2.8 lenses I use.

... When unused wide, as in a 24-70. Of  my lenses, the defect was evident on my 24-70 @ f2.8 and 24mm. Could still see it up to 35mm.

Mine has been fixed; so far the heavy front focus seems to be corrected, and quick tests show consistent banks to right banks. Need to do a little more testing there to be 100 % sure.
