Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue. My D850 is front focusing with 4 lenses I tried (105mm F/1.4E, 200mm F2/G, Tamron 90mm F/2.8 Macro VC and Sigma 50mm F/1.4 Art)

Has anyone else having this issue? All the lenses are fine with my D810.

Didn't expect this from D850

Why did not you expected it from D850? Could happen with any DSLR. If it happens with all your lenses by the same amount, just change default AF setting, or adjust lenses.

Because if you read the D850 manual it says... "AF Tuning is not recommended in most situations and may interfere with normal focus". I'm sure that's why there is disappointment.

lol scokill.

Every Nikon manual for every camera with AFFT says that - it has not prevented some users from considering, that AFFT is the most important function of a camera ever.

Well - it might be

Of course there are disappointment. It's hard to be rational when you have bought your life's dream, used $3300 and then detected an error. It's an understandable disappointment - still irrational.

Still...just wondering why Nikon continues to put that in the manual.

If it was true, I wonder why they have developped automatic fine focus tuning recently
