Have you taken any real life photos and how do they look?

And why would it make a difference ? The left sensor cannot properly focus on a easy target with good contrast. It's only going to be worse "in real life".

Not necessary. Instead of shooting targets to death, go out, use the camera, take photographs as you normally would and look at the results.  As I said, his target is not bad to me.  We have seen targets that you could see out-of-focus across the room.  His looks soft to me.  Unless he is shooting fine lettering or lines, I doubt a real life object would show up out-of-focus.

Test charts tend to exaggerate problems, which might or might not show up "in real life".

Too bad Nikon provided 51 AF points, should of gone with 21...then all these tests would be mute.
