Ok, so I have wanted the 800 since before it came out - I enjoy landscapes (printed large), macro gadgets with details, etc etc - should be perfect for a 36MP camera!

BUT... the unanswered question -purposely avoided by Nikon - what are the odds of having to deal with a bad instrument right out of the box?? Most of the posts here seem negative and many have multiple or seemingly unending poor results.

Is there a bright side to this anywhere?? I guess I am HOPEFUL that the focus issue occurs in only a small fraction of total production and those speaking out in this forum are the outlying points in a statistical analysis that Nikon must have conducted but not made public.

Please help as I can not make a purchase decision with the current data.
