Re: D800 issues?

The green monitor issue seems to be Internet nonsense. Nikon added green colours to the monitor which earlier cameras did not record. The newer cameras have different and better monitor colours.

I personally know 10 other D800 owners and none of us have had a problem camera. My pro dealer says he has sold over 100 and has not had one back.

Nikon seem to continue to sell 30,000 units a month worldwide, including 10,000 in USA. 10 months after launch they have not issued a product recall though they have issued a battery recall in the same period. Most who buy a new camera, or anything else, are sensible enough to know that if they do get a defective product they can quickly exchange it

At the time of the D200 banding issue when, according to the Internet 99% of new D200's were supposed to be defective, Nikon UK said they had had less than 2% return from all types of problem.

Up to now I have not seen a posted link at dpreview complaining of the left autofocus issue using an auto focus target likely to produce an accurate test results. This leaves me to believe, there is a lot more noise about D800 problems then there are problems to talk about.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
