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

Are you in the market also, or is this an academic interest?

Academic interest!  And, I admit, slight irritation at what appears to be baseless criticism of D800 AF, though I repeat I'm happy to be shown to be wrong.

I have a D800, and I've found no issues.  I've tested for left-focus problem, and I have found no evidence of that or other unexpected focus failure.

However, if anyone can come up with any description of repeatable circumstances where the D800 AF sometimes fails (but where it should be expected to work: that is, lighting within limits and correct settings) then let's all see if we can reproduce the problem.

Until then, I think we can take the millions of correctly focussed D800 pictures as some evidence that the D800 AF works as designed, and I'm going to take that as my working hypothesis!
