Re: Left focus point issue with D800

I bought it at B&H, (snip)

Get it replaced by B&H. You'll pay shipping but that's not worse than sending it to Nikon, since as you point out shipping to a Nikon repair facility is at your expense. Chances are high that you'll get a "good" one.

get one locally

Another way to go if they're willing to let you test the body. Advantage: they may lend you a tripod, as it appears that you don't have one. And even help you with the test.

Still weighing my options about getting it fixed at Nikon, but they don't eat the shipment to L.A.,

Not only that but there is a small chance that they won't fix it properly the first time around, and you'll have to ship it back again.
