It seems very strange that Nikon would knowingly release a worse AF. Smacks to me of clutching at straws on behalf of some D700 owners.

So I guess you're figuring sour grapes on behalf of D700 owners because that's all they can afford?? Well I happen to own a D4 and D800e, and I just picked up another D700. I place the D700 AF somewhere in between the 800 and the D4. And you certainly do not get the inconsistent focus that's been in the 800 series.

Agreed.  Your relative ranking of focusing consistency between these models is both fair and accurate, TO Shooter.
