>The resale market for these things is going to require left-focus validation.>
Therein lies the problem. How will you verify the problem with so many variables in the testing process? What if the owner doesn't own a wide fast lens to test their camera, assumes there is no "problem" and the buyer tests it and finds a problem?. We have members here who have only tested their camera with a 85mm lens, pronounced it free of the left AF focus problem and may sell it in the future only to find the new owner tests it with a wide lens and has a problem. What if you test with paper targets, find the AF "good enough", sell it to someone using Focal who does more rigorous testing and determines the camera has a problem? I know other D800 owners who have never tested their D800 for focus problems because they just don't care; they focus and recompose or never use the outer AF points.
Even if your camera is problem free, any buyers who follow forums or do a simple search for D800 information will find plenty to question before they buy a used D800. Unfortunately, I think the resale market for D800's will always be affected by the problems this camera has suffered since introduction.
