OK....Up Date

I just recieved the replacement 800E today from B&H. A quick test indoors with an 85mm 1.4G @1.4 shows that most likely the camaera is free from the left focus issue. I shot using center, left and right (phase detect) AF points. All three images look very sharp. I know the 85mm isn't exactly a wide angle, how ever, with it's very shallow DOF I think the lens would show the issue if it were present.

The serial number is 3,850 units higher than the 800E I recieved just three weeks ago. I wasn't too optimistic that I would wind up with a keeper. Some times it's nice to be wrong. Now I'll have to check out a few functions that others reported having trouble with. Then finally, go out and take photo's.
