I wish I were one of the lucky ones. However, doesn't mean it is very real for many of us. Simply far too much smoke and noise about this issue for it to only exist on a couple of cameras.

I would have more sympathy with you raising the issue yet again if you posted a sample image (which does not need to be large) demonstrating an AF fault using AF sensibly.

As of now I make it 162 out of 162 posted images on this forum indicating they were not using AF sensibly.

While back I posted images of my focus issue with the D800 , I guess I am one of many posters who are totally Ignorant about using AF properly, but when the camera was sent to Nikon, they found reason to fix the focus issue, now middle & outer points all focusing well. Your generalisation is too simplistic, you have no idea.

Did you whine about it for two years? No, you did not. You did EXACTLY what I would have done if I found mine to have a problem. Send it in, get it fixed and that's it. I don't know what was said and shown in that thread or if Leonard's "162 out of 162 posted images" is accurate or if yours is among those, but I don't think anyone is claiming that there is not a single Nikon camera which can have an AF issue. Sh!t happens, regardless which camera or brand you are using, but if it happens then the best is to let Nikon fix it. Whining here on DPR for years won't fix anything, and having an agenda and running a campaign against the D800/D800e is just trolling, not to be taken seriously.
