Steve, if I interpret your comment correctly, you have some facts of which I am not aware. So the left focus issue that is being discussed on this board and others are for cameras that were manufactured before Nikon fixed the problem . Therefore, we should not see thsrs same complaints from buyers of more recent D800s. If this is a accurate reflection of the current state of D800 purchased bodies, I will buy the D800 without delay. I just need to be convinced that, with all due respect, you are correct. Could you explain your conclusion further. How's did you arrive at that conclusion. Thanks.
