Re: D800 Service Statement regarding AF issue

Some are cautious about a first post that "complains" - with no supporting images.

Focus assist has a limited distance range - were you shooting within range?

All Nikon DSLR fail to AF good with some types of subjects some of the time - explained on page 100 of your D800 instructions.

"Simple" AF charts may not be good for accurate AF, especially if used at an inappropriate focus distance for the angle of view.

What we cannot tell is whether you might have a faulty camera, or your problem might be not  using the camera to a good standard.
