I don't mind your opinion, believe me, and the only thing I was getting at was something that surprised ME. I did not expect the D800 to show this sort of minor issue. And I do consider it minor, but something interesting when it comes to sensor performance. Believe me, I have shot far less capable cameras!

I tend to agree, this post was meant, since the beginning, to be a nitpicky, tech-nerdy post, not a condemnation of the D800.
At any rate, thanks for the quick reply and a clarification of your perspective. I did take your comments as adversarial, and I apologize to you.
