I received my forth D800e and all focus points are spot on. Praise the Lord, High 5!!!!! Over the past year I have had 1 new D800' 1 used D800 and 1 used D800e. The new D800 went to Nikon for repair, came back with the same issue( that was early on in the D800/e repair process) and returned both used ones to sellers for the same issue. I was lucky to come across a D800e that the owner wasn't sure if it had an issue because he never uses any other A/F point than the center. I asked him if he would send it to Nikon before I purchased with a A/F complaint . He said sure, sent it in, they repaired A/F and this thing is spot on, all points, thru viewfinder and Live View, they are all the same. I started enjoying this body with my 85 1.4 and the 200 F2. and I am ecstatic. "Technical aspects MUST be innate"
