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/).

I hate to admit that for the first time I looked at this Ming guy's page and I must say he is right. If you really have a problem with your left AF then you are not going to be able to fix it, so instead of spending a lot of time in trying all kind of fixes, doing every possible tests and still not be happy, use the warranty and send it in. There is no way you can fix any non-linear errors on your own, no matter how you test or what targets you are using, so Ming is 100% right. The only reason to test on your own is to conclude the problem, but some times "gut feeling" is enough, depending on your own experience.

BTW, when you enter a link don't add any other characters because then it will not work and we get Error 404.
