Re: Can someone please point me to hard evidence of D800 focus problems

I've had a browse through this thread, but I've seen nothing but personal abuse and vague comments that hint at focus issues.

Sorry if I've missed it, but has anyone posted evidence of specific focus problems, with descriptions of how to recreate those problems? I mean something with enough specific information to allow any D800 user to repeat the situation, and say with certainty "yes that problem occurs with my camera" or "no it doesn't".

No, no repeatable "evidence" was ever shown or discussed. I'd be very glad to repeat that test if there was any.

We know there was a left-focus issue with early D800s (now long-since fixed), and I'm sure any particular D800 might have a manufacturing defect (or have broken).

Right. If there ever was a left AF issue it is hardly missed by Nikon and it supposed to be fixed a long time ago. I bought mine in September 2012 and it had no "left AF issue".

But I've read no evidence of any generic design or manufacturing fault in D800 focusing (since the left-focus problem).

If that's wrong, please correct me. With hard evidence.

You are right. There is no such evidence.
