Lots of post on the focus problems of D800/E. I had it and got it fixed by Nikon months ago.

Now, for no apparent reason my center focus point and the two just below are having major problems. If I focus on something close then focus further away, it doesn't focus, it just searches slightly, not in and out, but just a little. Only the center focus point and the two right below center does this. If I choose any another focus point it works fine. It does this in all focus modes.

Also, it seems only on my 200-400mm lens not my 70-200. I've cleaned the contacts on both camera and lenses.

Anyone else have this or similar problem? I'm wondering if it is still a repercussion of the original problem or something new.
