Re: Believe what?

Bought a D800 in Montreal about a month ago.  Serial starts with 500xxx.  I checked the body in the store for the left focus issue, and sure enough, there it was, pretty obvious...so I checked their demo, same problem.  Then they unwrapped a second new body, same problem again.

Clerks never heard about the problem, wich astonished me:  first, they don't spend much  time on forums, second, most customers don't even realize there is a problem as none had complained yet .

The left focus issue is not imagined.

I bought one body anyway, and went directly to Nikon Canada, Montreal Branch. They kept the camera for 10 days, and it was returned to me perfect.   You still have to adjust focus fine tune once as usual, but there is no assymetry, wich cannot be compensated for...
Most recent lenses are now fine tuned between zero and +6 on the fine tune scale.
