I just got a D800 yesterday, and it seemed problem free until I started noticing that when ever I use it with the SB-900 / SB-700 with AF-Assist, there is some back focus issues. Even when I block the AF Assist light with my hand, it just back focuses more. But if I turn off the AF-Assist and use the one on my camera, everything is just fine. Maybe a software bug in the system? I'm not having the issue with my D7000.

Anyone else having the same issues? I can somewhat work around it if I dial the AF fine tune to -20 when using AF-Assist, but that's still not enough.

It happens with all my lenses, btw.
