We've had several discussions of how the focus accuracy and consistency of the D800 compares to other cameras. Lens Rentals has done some testing on the subject and presents the results in an interesting article found here:

Their test results involved more than 320 frames under test conditions using high end testing equipment. They tested the D800, D700, D4, and D3x.
