Have you shot with a D800?
If you have, and still are concerned, maybe it was not for you in the first place. Nikon will never announce they had a fix when it is questionable whether they think there was ever a problem other than case by case final checkout errors.
Those who take photos with theirs, instead of just tests and rulers at an angle, who have the far left FP inaccuracy, find that the image quality is second to none. And, at over 800 ISO beats out the most expensive MF cameras. A survey of those who use wide primes at 1.4 focused using a far left FP would surely turn up a few people who had a frame or two spoiled but it would also turn up the fact that very few people ever select a far left FP when shooting wide open. I doubt if I ever have. The Right-most FP , yes, for portraiture but I could never say with certainty if I have ever used the far left FP with a wide open wide lens on any of my cameras. That is likely why so few people noticed it until they heard that testing was all the rage.
Even that is only a point for historical context, it has been a while since any verified problems have been reported in months.
