I have the same problem with my D800. I got a canned response from Nikon to install the latest firmware and the usual basic camera techniques and shooting settings. The newest version was the same as my camera:
A 1.00
B 1.01
C 1.004
But to be safe I downloaded and installed. No change. However the center focus point is tack sharp so I intend to shoot with that for now until the summer/fall shooting season is over then send it in for Nikon to make the necessary adjustments. Attached is an example photo where I spot focused on the girl's face. Not sure if you can see the detail here but if you could enlarge the image her face is significantly out of focus. There were 8 other photos in this sequence with the same result. f2.8 1/1600 ISO 200 Nikkor 24-70 2.8 Distance 3.4m 43mm focal length
