Re: Has Nikon fixed the D800/E AF Left Side Focus Problem?

Well, I got myself a new D800 last week, the AF was terrible with the same lenses I use on my D4's and D3's (where no or very little  AF fine tune is needed)... So, I got a replacement... Even a bit worse...

Both cameras needed a global AF correction and the center and other AF-points where completely misaligned. So, I actually needed to change my AF fine-tine value when changing to some AF points. Pretty embarassing for Nikon in my opinion...

The shop acknowledged it was pretty bad also, and advised to have it calibrated by Nikon since they encountered it more often (or have a refund)... Hope it comes back OK.... Fingers crossed...

So fixed, not in my case, and both where new cameras just received from Nikon.
