I was thinking the samething. I wanted to pick up oone from B&H but was hoping to see a sold out or back order in hopes of getting a new batch. But I'm pretty sure they unfort have a stock pile on hand now. Anyone here get one from B&h within the last month with any problems?

You got lucky. It is definitely a widespread problem that shouldn't happen on a $3,200 camera and shouldn't take 3-6 weeks to send back to Nikon for a fix.

Notwithstanding the Camera God's smiling on Will , how is the green LCD problem on the 800's. I want to pick up an 800E but don't want to have to deal with any problems, especially the green LCD widely reported.

everyone I know loves theirs. Not sayin' some aren't great outta da box BUT
feel it's blown WAY out of proportion. D7K deja vu...all over again just at
a higher price-point. Nikon QC sucks, they should totally be embarrassed.

Took delivery of one a week ago and it's rediculsly accurate with all points.

The LCD on the other hand is pretty freaking green as was the d600 I got to use for a couple weeks.

I ordered my D800 back in October and I don't have the focus issue nor do I have the "green tint" lcd issue.

My focus issue was fixed a couple months ago. Never had a problem with the LCD. The LCD may be a bit warmer then previous models.

i have four D800(e)s and all have the problem. I would hate to think that camera god hates me so much he trolled me like that...
that said, i shoot with them, didnt bothered to send them all in. i sent one in and it returned with same issue.

Agree with Will that it's blown way out of proportion (a characteristic of the Internet). Personally, I don't even use the far left AF point but tested for it anyway and it focuses fine. No green LCD either.

Awesome camera.

I have one D800 and no focus problems. Purchased September 2012. So far I have not met a single D800 user (speaking to actual Nikon D800 owners in person, not on fora) who experienced the focus problem (you know which one).

I feel sorry for those who feel they still have a focus problem and hope it will be solved.

I went through 3 D800 bodies and 1 D800E body between July and September. All defective. I have not tried again since September.

Both my cameras had the problem (D8000 from April, D800e from June) per Thom Hogan's test procedure. I sent both in on a recent Friday, had them back in ten days from Nikon in Los Angeles. The problem is gone. I wish I had sent them earlier.

I just paid the shipping to get them to Nikon, I skipped the pre-discussion.
