Hard to believe I'm asking these questions when seriously considering purchasing a $3000 camera from Nikon. However, after reading the threads in this forum I feel I must even though there are many satisfied D800 owners as well.

My questions are: (1) aside from keeping an eye on general performance items, what flaws should I be mindful of (e.g. focus points issues, etc.), and (2) do I need to do lens calibrations? My lenses are 24-70/f2.8, 70-200mm/f2.8 VR II, and 85/f1.4D.

I've owned the D70, D200, currently own the D700, and never had to do tests and lens corrections. Just a simple "plug lens into camera and play" and things worked well, so these possibilities are new to me.

Thank you.
