I seem to recall a similar thread about 12 months ago when you were having issues shooting at 1.4, you posted a hand held image of a man with a baby in arms and were concerned about the focus accuracy when two moving items were involved, maybe you still have that image you could post to illustrate the point ?

You recall wrong, and anyway it is perfectly possibly to get a high hit rate at f/1.4 in such a situation. The D700 handled it for 5 years...downsizing from 36mp the D800s files are still often out and can be seen in a 12MP resize. Think again.

So why not use the D700 and save the forum from your non stop whining.

Oh grow up it's sold and gone long ago now, it's completely not the point the device I have bought should work.

I think you need to take your own advice and grow up.  If the camera is bad enough for you to troll about it for two years then maybe it's time to switch or send it back in.
