Not sure about this one, so take with a grain of salt, the liveview mode apparently accentuate the soft focus issue.


Agreed, the grammar here leaves something to be desired. Just for clarity, this was the Amazon user's commentary (not mine).

I believe the only reasonable interpretation of what he's saying is that the Left AF mis-focus was detectable simply viewing the images produced with PDAF and that when compared to images produced with CDAF in Live View the mis-focus was accentuated.


I realized it wasn't yours. If he was testing PDAF, it could not be accentuated by CDAF. CDAF is the reference. Something is amiss.

Regarding amazon reviews looking at D800E reviews show excellent numbers. But the catch is both unit have the same focusing system. Go figure.
