I am actually contemplating the purchase of this body and while researching I found this thread

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.aspforum=1021&message=15429473

and quite frankly, it is scaring the bejeepers out of me - $5000 for a camera with focusing problems! So here are some questions:

(1) Are these guys complaints valid? Statistically some D2X's will show up a variety of problems, but I would them to be smeared across all features of the camera system.

(2) Is this an issue of incorrect use of the equipment or the settings that control focus?

(3) Is there REALLY a focussing issue and all the wonderful photographs seen in this and other forums the result of unspecified work-arounds?

(4) Could the problems described be as the result of sub-optimal glass?
