I received a D800E with the left focus problem. Rather than send the camera for repair I elected to return the camera to the vendor for credit and wait until I am satisfied that Nikon is producing cameras that are not defective. As a result I am out of pocket $136 for two way shipping of a defective product...but that is the choice I made.

Is there any reason to believe that at this point in time Nikon has solved its assembly problem that resulted in the left focus problem with some cameras? I am sure that Nikon will never acknowledge that cameras with certain serial numbers "may" have the problem and that cameras beginning with xxxx serial numbers are free of the problem since it is motivated to minimize the number of cameras returned for repair. However, others may be able to observe that the "problem cameras" are in fact limited to a certain range of serial numbers. So when may we have any assurance that the problem is solved and don't have to be concerned about receiving a camera with a focus problem?
