This reminds me of when the Canon EOS MKIII came out and had serious AF issues - post after forum post about people saying it's bad technique, inexperience users, etc. Turns out there really WAS an issue and the same is true for BOTH of my D800 bodies.
When I use center AF or the right AF< my subjects - in the real world - are sharp. When I use the left AF, they're not. I'm glad you seem to have a camera that's fine, congrats
Curious, did all MKIII have the same focus issue? The focus issue with the D800/E seems to be different from camera to camera. My problem is the left AF point's focus drops off quicker than the center or right points. This is not worth worrying about. Others are reporting a pretty wide variety of focus issues, with some being pretty severe. I think many are under the impression that reported problems are an all or nothing proposition--if I have a problem, then you have a problem, but, if I don't, you don't. The OP might feel this way.
It was similar with people having problems to greater or lesser degrees, and all the same types of forum posts - again
Yeah, I agree - I think people are looking at their one sample and using it as the standard for the 100,000+ cameras or so that are now in the wild.
