Curious why a number of the post here note the need for MF and why stated as in above post "problem will sure be focusing". I understand the desire for Zeiss MF lenses for video but beyond that why? I have found the auto focus of the D3s and D700 to be spot on. Why would this camera be any different?
Also, with repsect to prime only. I find it hard to believe that the Nikon 14-24, Nikon 24-70, and 70-200 aren't going to deliver outstanding results on the D800.
I find AF-S lenses I own ( 24-70, 70-200 ) has less precision in terms of focus throw. Few mm rotation in barrel result in huge range of distance compare to manual focus lens such as ZF.2s. Which makes me wonder the level of tolerance in terms of focusing. AF is great for fast moving subject, however, if one wants a critical focus in still subject with huge pixel amount ( less forgiving, it seems ), manual focusing for those only makes sense. I imagine the difference between 'sort of there' to 'right there' will be more revealed in this range of resolution. One other thing I noticed with 24-70. When comparing 24-70 to ZF35s, I noticed that 24-70 has noticeable deeper DOF at the same f-stop compare to ZFs, which also made me think about the tolerance. Deeper DOF (AFS-24-70)must help AF system to achieve focus compare to thinner DOF lens (ZF).
