"RE: D800 Focusing Issue"

Hi Ruks,

I did several tests, but here is a simple one to consider starting off with.

I lined up about 15 hard cover books on a table and made sure the sleeves/spines facing the camera were as even as possible.

Camera was set to "P" mode. I then put the camera with a wide angle lens (24mm) on a tripod. I set the camera to AF-S and used the center single focus point first to take a picture of all the books focusing on the middle book. The camera was about 3 feet from the books.

Then, without moving the camera, I repeated this using the individual extreme left, right. top, and bottom focus points. I subsequently made comparisons of all shots to the center point image.

If all focus points look good vs. the center point, you can stop there. If you want to extend the test, you can visit what I did at

Good luck with the new camera!
