factory specs

You must remember that within factory specs for focusing is a standard baseline that probably has no changed over time. While people are ​enlarging​ their photos more and more by viewing them so large on a computer screen.  A photo that looked in good focus from a 4x6 film print viewed at 100% pixel view on a 27 inch computer screen might look rather different for the quality of the point in focus of the image.

View your d800 photos at 4" x 6" size and see how the focus looks.  This is the heart of the issue of people thinking the focus on their camera is really out of tolerance when it's not.  Everything can't be perfect in .05 seconds without the photographer choosing the final focusing for the image.
