I picked up my D800 this last Wednesday. I thought I would be more excited about getting it, but the mood was dampened by the out-roar of people complaining about the left focus points issues. I did some very extensive tests and my fears were confirmed. My left AF points with both PDAF and CDAF were off.
I fine tuned my lenses to no avail. Needless to say, the camera is amazing and coming from the D700 it is a nice upgrade, but in the end, I don't want to be a guinea pig for Nikon while they sort out this mess. I returned the camera and will wait a few months or more until this is sorted out. In the mean time, the D700 is a great camera and I can count on it being spot on every time with proper technique.
