Yesterday I got my new Nikon D800E S/N: 3006XXX, the local store received a new batch from Nikon last Friday, so it's a newly built camera. Tested with all my lenses:

- Nikon 50 f/1.8G
- Nikon 85 f/1.8G
- Nikon 105 f/2.8G
- Nikon 28-300 f/3.5-5.6G

None of the Lenses required any AF-Fine Tune adjustment, meaning AF-Fine Tune is OFF. All of the Lenses were reasonable sharp at Center, Right and Left AF Points, the only exception was the 28-300 at some high focal lengths ( > 100mm) that was just a little bit Out of focus.

Just as a reference, I've done the same tests, multiple times before with 3 D800 (S/N: 302XXXX, 304XXXX, 305XXXX), and I had Left AF issues with ALL the lenses all the time.

Clearly this D800E is a winner, and there is hope that Nikon might have finally resolved the Left AF problems.
