To answer at least one of your questions...

I just received my new D800 from B&H yesterday and mine was set to London/Cascablanca TZ as well, date/time was March 2012. Apparently this is NORMAL, so nothing to worry about. My shutter count was 2. Serial number: 3060xxx.

I tested AF and it's working great for me, even the dreaded outer left point, but my lenses are the 24-120mm f/4 and 50 f/1.8, no wide-angle+narrow DoF problems for me.

Some have speculated that lenses with field curvature may be the most prone. Instead of a focus plane, a focus sphere might be causing PDAF to be off. Question: are your left and right sides equally OOF? -Joe
