How can you suggest both of these in the same post? I'm not trying to flame you, and I'm not even that angry, but do you have any idea how frustrating it is to spend this kind of money on a camera, and get better auto focus results from a D300?

It's not like anyone can just call up Nikon in Japan and discuss the problem with one of their optics engineers. My case was escalated up to a Senior General Manager of Customer Service, and the testing he did was completely botched. He didn't even bother to actually test the center focus point. He also did his tests at 1/80th of a second, so it's hard to know in a few of his examples weather camera shake or mirror vibration had anything to do with it.

I have VERY clearly documented evidence of the problems I was seeing with my camera. There was literally no explanation. Not "oh we'll look into it more" or any sort of apology for having to send it in twice. The third time, the response was basically, "it's good enough for us, sorry you're having a problem."

I don't think anyone is anti-Nikon that bought a D800. I've have forked over a lot of cash to Nikon over the years. I like Nikon's products. I think they offer something others don't specifically compatibility back to the 1970's AI/AI-s mount and even F mount lenses that have been AI converted. Do I expect to be coddled and pampered because of that? No. I simply expect to receive a fully working product, or at least one as good as others have.

>If you think we are arrogant and annoying, why keep posting?

Unless you have something specifically to add to either help with the focusing issues people have encountered, or to offer some support, why do you keep posting?
