D810 focus issue


last week I've purchased a new D810. I took a few photos with various lenses and to my surprise (disappointment) I saw a few off focus. I thought it was just me and setup a test with a printed target. I've tested these lenses:

Nikon 35mm 1.4

Nikon 85mm 1.8

Nikon 24-70 2.8

All of the photos taken with livewiew were perfect while the ones through the viewfinder where front focusing. I'm very surprised by the result.

Saying this I must say that last year I serviced my D800E. With the camera I sent 2 of those lenses (35mm and 85mm). It came back perfectly calibrated. I'm now wondering if they actually calibrated the lenses as well and now on the new camera they have problems.

Does anyone know this?

I've included 2 photos to show you what it looks like with the 85mm

Thanks for your help
