I compared the d800 side by side with sharpness of the D3s and the D3s was so much better. It wasn't that one side was soft it all seemed soft. I tried all my lenses including the 70-200 f2.8 vr2 and my trusty 50mm f1.4 and even on a tripod they still seemed soft, I must add I do have 20/20 vision, so I knew it wasn't my eyes. After trying for a day I decided to return it as I'm not happy buying something that doesn't work for me.

Sorry, but think logically here. How can one camera be "softer" than the other?

The d800 has more resolution, and by all accounts it has a very weak AA filter too. There's no way it should be "softer". Total nonsense.

Also, less than one day of ownership doesn't qualify you for anything.

One camera can be softer than another for 2 reasons:

1. Flawed auto-focus / lens tuning

2. Technique of the photographer. Hand holding d800 with 24-70 i get softer images than i did hand holding d90 with the same lens. This applies to low light situations only.
