Before I go any further, I know there's plenty of old forums with questions about a) the Nikon repair facilities, b) the left focus issue, and c) the D800 in general. This question, I hope, is different and has no relation to previous topics.
Now -- I will be very close to LA (Buena Park) from Tuesday (5/21) through Thurs (5/23) of this week for company training. My warranty expires on July 3rd, I believe. Since I live in San Diego, and it's about 2 hrs from LA, I thought since I'll be about 20-25 miles away I should "drop off" my D800 to get it factory serviced.
My camera was manufactured in the batch that had the left focus issue. That being said, I haven't particularly noticed the issue since I DO NOT shoot an ABUNDANCE of birds in flight or moving subjects. However, I will certainly run across scenarios when I WILL be shooting subjects such as these and would like to have a camera that has correctly calibrated focus.
So, would you guys suggest I drop off the camera and get it tested out while I'm so close? Any feedback appreciated as usual. Thanks
