This is my first post here (I will bore you with a little bit about myself elsewhere), but to stay on topic with focus and the D800.
Could someone please answer a simple question for me that I haven't been able to find the answer to in the research I've done on the focus issue. Is this issue solely related to the Phase Detect system (ie LV mode is not affected)?
In various tests I've conducted on my d800 the results have been somewhat inconclusive. There are subtle differences in focus between LV and viewfinder at 200x magnification, but they aren't huge differences, so I expect I do not have an issue.
