On a side note, whats the story w current D800's ? I returned my first one after 3 days (6/12) w terrible left side. I'm ready for another go @ 36mp, is the coast clear ?

I would hope so, but you never know. I have a fairly early copy of the D800. Mine had a bit of the left AF point issue, but it really didn't effect anything. What DID effect things was the repeatable focus errors on good targets, usually with fast glass and on a tripod. The firmware solved that issue and I've been happy with the D800 ever since.

But when I finally move up to a D900 (or whatever) I'll likely look back on the D800, along with many others, as a troubled camera release for Nikon.

Would I buy it again? Yes.
