The variation you are getting is a problem in coming up with any solution. That suggests your test conditions or technique may be an issue.

Take a look at this article over at LensRentals.com. The article is about a Canon lens, but I would expect to see similar variation for Nikon lenses.

My take would be that you need to work on technique until you get consistent results. Even the best photographers are going to miss focus. Not all subjects are good AF targets. And while AF today is the best ever, you have enough resolution in a D800 to see the slightest error.

I'm not saying you don't have a camera problem - just that variable results are most likely due to other factors than the camera.
