Re: D800E PDAF is better than my D700

I would suggest that everybody was getting the same, or worse, AF errors on the d700 but simply 36mp is letting you notice more.

Which is just another way of saying that the 2007 era PDAF system of the D800 is not up to the requirements of a 2012 era 36mp Sony sensor.  Seems Nikon could have anticipated PDAF tolerances needed to be tightened in product development for the D800.
