I certainly meant no disrespect, please consider it having expressed surprise.
Could you pick a couple of the images that you think are illustrative. I looked at a few and found very sharp sections of each that did not illustrate camera shake, but I may be looking at the wrong one.
Nonetheless, it's about being happy. If it isn't making you happy...

Also very surprised there. Mine were all over the place. I'm in the process of running through a D4 with the same lenses, and getting much more consistent results, and more near zero (some exceptions). But the curves are flatter also, meaning it appears less sensitive to what the AF adjustment is on the D4 than the D800. That's probably a function of pixel size but not sure, I wish I could try my D300 but Focal isn't working on the D300 at the moment.
