I got my D800 16 days ago, after pre-ordering in the uk.

I seem to have a very serious left/right alignment problem. You can see that the Centre and Right are acceptably sharp - the other is the leftmost AF point which is way out.

I suspected a problem after reading about the AF issues online, and after initial checks which didn't look good, I bought the Reikan FoCal software, which also shows a major left/right disparity.

I don't think it even takes a test chart to show the problem - check out the pics; lens is the 50mm f/1.4G wide open.

NB: Camera was mounted on a CF tripod and exposure delay set at 3 seconds. The results are similar when tested with the 14-24G and the 24-70G, so it's not a lens problem.

thanks for any advice,
Frank
