This is yet another example of why nobody should buy a D800. The damn thing never could focus properly for many, myself included. I relegated mine to real estate photography that gets downsampled into the 5-10 MP range. At this low resolution, the D800s soft focusing problem is not discernible.

This was one of Nikon's most botched releases in recent memory.

Mine, before repair, used to work flawlessly, you can check in my Flickr that all of the portraits I shot wide open or thereby are in perfect focus, something happened after repair and before I go back there I want to make sure what it is about so that they can't argue.
