OK... I've had my 800e for almost a week now. I was doing some more reading on the the left focal point issue and I decided to do a little more testing this evening. With a 24-70mm @ 2.8-50mm and a target distance of 12' it looks like my camera has the problem. Using auto-focus with the left FP the target is OOF but an object 3' past the target is fairly sharp. Using LV to focus I can get the target sharp, naturally the object past the target is OOF.
I know this topic has been discussed thoroughly, though I haven't seen any threads that are recent. Another thing I just noticed, someone posted back in May of last year, that his 800 had the problem. He listed the serial# of his camera as 30095XX. I purchased my camera 10 months later from B&H and my serial number is lower than his, 30093XX What's up with that. I know the 800e is less of a production run than the 800, but really...
So has this issue been addressed on the latest bodies? What's the latest scoop.
