FWIW, I obtained a refurbished unit last month, that AFAICT, has none of the issues that some users have complained about.

I don't believe that the outer AF points are going to be as accurate as the inner cross type points, but believe that they should be fairly close.

Jun Zhou, I tested mine by using a large piece of cardboard with several standard AF targets taped to one side. In good lighting, using a tripod and making sure to defocus between test shots, I tested first the center, then the outermost left and then the outermost right AF points. I did this several times with several different WA lenses and compared the test shots. In all cases, my center point was more accurate than either of the outer points. The outer point comparison showed a slight difference between them.

It was probably only 20% of D800's that had the left AF mis focus issue to start with. My dealer tells me that he hasn't heard of any problems for over six months now.

Tried most if not all of the AF points with a 135DC wide open when we got our Refirb D800 in December. All seemed to produce the same result.

You should test it with a fast wide-angle where it's much more apparent than with (short)tele.

Mine is from June and no issues (tested it with a 24/1.4G).

I bought one the day it was released and another new one a few weeks ago. Neither has the issue. The main difference I see is the sensor doesn't get as spotty on the newer body.

By most accounts >75% of the D800/D800E shooters are quite pleased with theirs...
get one and join the fun. Refurbs are a great deal now, or just buy new and ignore the
whiners. They make a lot of noise...but are clearly in the minority.

^^agreed.

My uncle has a D800E and a friend has a D800. They both work perfectly fine. I just wish I could afford one at the moment. Maybe when I get my tax return >

Got my D800E around August and tested with both 50/1.4 and 85/1.8 and do not have any issues.
