Any explanations why it's always the left AF sensor ?

Please stop twisting facts.

It is not always the left sensor, there are a few threads about the right sensor.

It should be well known, because it is using the Nikon specification, that the centre sensors have better autofocus capability than the outer sensors.

It is also fairly well now that the outer detectors do not respond to some subjects in the central cross type senses can read the ease.

Anybody able to score more than 5 out of 100 for logic should be able to work out the autofocus ability of outer and central points is not equal.

124 complaints on this forum seem to have been by photographers who did not use the D800 properly. There seem to be non using Nikon guidance.

The only logical explanation as why those who seem not use the camera properly complain is because they post links showing they seemed not use the camera properly

There is always a definite silence in threads like this when I ask some-one to find a link to a problem using the camera in accordance with Nikon's guidance.

It is extremely difficult to comment on possibly perceived problems when there seems to be no evidence that the problem is anything other than some photographers not using their cameras as Nikon advise for best autofocus results.

I do not disagree that a few cameras with which their owners perceive  a problem might actually have a problem if used properly. However if no one posts showing a problem following Nikon's guidance no one knows how many, if any, there might be

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