Hard to say. I know people in Europe who recently bought the D800 and still had to try a few copies before finding one without the left side focus point issue.
I would still wait
The D900 will be out before too long
when all the imagined problems and issues of the D800 be addressed
Yes, several people have said it is easy to test for the left focus issue, but have not said how to do this. Can someone help me understand how to test this? Thank you!
Wow, I thought the D800 AF issue was that it just severely backfocused. Are you saying that, if the camera has a problem, it won't even confirm focus with a beep on the left side?
