Ok so until i got a wide prime, I didn't experience any issues with my left most focus point. I tried it on two different 50mm primes and a 60mm prime. Then during a shoot a week ago I was using the 28mm 1.8g and spotted that the focusing was awfully off on the left side.

So I just did a test - very basic, but very apparent - and here's the result.

I used a magazine on the table at a distance of about 5 feet, on a tripod. Took raw images at full res. Focused with AF and then LV on left most, center, and right most.

I've read on Ming Thein's site that he had his fixed and the error is due to calibration issues when they were first manufactured (link: http://blog.mingthein.com/2012/07/04/nikon-d800e-focusing-update-problem-solved/).

Any other advice on this would be most appreciated. Thank you.
