Got it in the first batch that was shipped to NPS. Was just dealing with it until my January slow season.

I did a full series of left to right focus point tests against a resolution target using AF and then using live view at max zoom and MF as a comparison. Below are my results. It's pretty obvious unless you can't see the big "E" on the eye chart. Top row is using the AF sensor highlighted in red. Middle row is using live view/MF.

Just sent it to Melville last week and they received it a few days ago. We'll see if they calibrate it properly. I included a hardcopy printout of my findings as well as the JPG burned onto the disk and referenced the "well known D800/D800E left side focusing issue." I don't know what else I could have said about it to point them in the right direction so that they throw it on that "jumbo laser autofocus-tron" of theirs.

Lens was a Nikon 50mm F/1.4 AF-S at F/1.4.
