Eric,

Makes sense. I use the 85 f/1.8, and I've tested my 24-70 f/2.8. Both have similar results. I have also tested both wide open (not testing any other apertures).

I get where you are going and when I get the camera back from Melville, Ill try some more variability with lenses to see if the issue is consistent.

In the past, with my D3, across all my lenses, I have dialed in micro focus adjustments with each lens, and found no issues at any of the 51 focus points. With the D800, with real world examples, I see I difference from center to edge focus points. Now with the 36MP of the D800, it may be more pronounced than the D3, but that will be one of the other tests I run, comparing the D3 vs. D800 with each lens to see if the issue existed before and I just didn't notice.

Thanks for the advice.
