Yes, mine has that dreaded issue. I'm so bummed!!!!

Sorry to read that. Not that it would make you feel any better but that's no luck at all. Considering how quiet this forum has become over the issue: the problematic cameras seem far and between these days.

My recommendation is to either ask for a replacement or a refund.

Good luck !

Thanks for the "condolences".   Mine has the serial #307xxxx, if anyone is curious.
Gah!  Yeah, (shaking my head) why me?  Why not, right? lol

I would have loved to use it for a wedding this coming Saturday, too.  Le sigh.  I bought it at B&H, and got a good package with it.  I'll probably return it and get one locally and test out the left focus point before actually buying the specific one I got.  I don't know.  Still weighing my options about getting it fixed at Nikon, but they don't eat the shipment to L.A., so, that's ... uh!
