I bought my D800E in October. I was never satisfied with what it produced compared to my D300 using the same 24-70 f/2.8. The images were soft overall, requiring more sharpening applied in ViewNX; +10 for D800E vs. +4 for my D300. I couldn't get it dialed in to where I was satisfied. Figuring I bought myself an expensive backup to my D300 I sent the `800 and the 24-70 to Nikon last month. Three weeks later(including shipping both ways) it is back and according to my primitive, preliminary tests it looks spot on now. I never went into it to check for the left focus issue as mine was off everywhere.


Since you´ve sent both your D800 and your 24-70mm to Nikon, have you checked if they´ve adjusted the AF fine tuning for this lens?
