Having looked at 169 images posted on this forum claiming a D800 focus issue none tested to a standard which confirmed a focus issue!

This assertion lacks fundamental logic or experimental data for all the 169 cases; we can simply ignore it.

The left focus problem in the meantime has been acknowledged by Nikon. Maybe you should rewind your clock, and return to the current time zone.

His views can be summarised as 'Nikon are always right, most users are ignorant and misguided, except himself, and a few others'.

If we have to believe Leonard, the focus system of Nikon cameras would be completely useless. I would therefore say he heavily criticizes Nikon instead. Nikon confirms left-focus and dust problems. Leonard hasn't reached the level to identify those problems.

His only "defense" is a reference to conceptual pictures in a manual, not being able to deliver technical argumentation or test material to validate his assertions to deny all tests shown here.

I wouldn't connect him to the Nikon brand. It's more of a religious thing than based on facts, and more about himself.
