Other than your usual chances of getting a lemon with any model, the main issue with the D800 has been the left AF alignment/calibration. If you had purchased early in the release you would have had a 70-80% chance of getting one without the problem.

I believe that the factory has sorted the AF problem out and new ones don't have it. So, your risk is down to getting an older copy that was returned by a customer or just hadn't moved through distribution yet. If you got one of those just return it to the dealer and demand a replacement. At this time I think the risk is rather low.

Yeah thats what i gather too , its about time to pull the trigger on this one !!!!!!!!!!!!
