I didn't even test mine yet for the left focus issue and I have had it for 3 months ... I like to photograph similar to you.
I use Manual Focus for Macros and Live View focus for Landscapes neither of which are influenced by a potential left focus issue. Both of which are better than AF for these applications even if left-AF is working perfectly. Couldn't be happier with the D800e now that I am well into the learning curve.
