My D800 is soon going to be 1 year old and I have waited this long in hopes that Nikon repair centers would get a good handle on the focus issues surrounding the D800. All my lenses need -20 adjustment to get acceptable focus and I'm not talking cheap glass here; 70-200mm VR2, 24-120mm f2.8 AFS, 105 f2.8 Micro Nikkor, 50mm f1.4 and f1.8.

I know there are several repair centers, does anyone have a suggestion as to which to send it to or is it still pretty much a toss up? Have they gotten to a point where they can reliably address this issue?

BTW, I am not referring to the dreaded left focus problem as mine seems to be pretty consistent. I'm simply referring to how much back focus I have. Setting -20 gives me little leeway.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advise you may have.

Brian
