    i think my issue is a bit subjective. i feel it is not sharp even if i put it on a tripod or i'm just expecting something that's not really supposed to happen.

    End result - not much difference, not noticeably better but then the left focal bank wasn't OOF in the first place but not as sharp as the right side.

    Tested it with the 50mm 1.8.

    Maybe I'm getting old, but I find the D800 AF system very complicated, and the user manual is not much help. Had to do many google searches to find that I needed.

    KRW has just posted a convenient idiot's guide to the D800's AF system. For those with similar struggles, u might want to check it out:

    Just go to NCS to check whether my D800 got left focus issue.
    After half an hour checking, they said my D800 ok.
    Below are the result, any comment on the result.
    Lens : 35mm f2

    1. Center


    2. Left


    3.Right

    Erm, I thought left focus issue is for wide angle lens like 24mm and below?

    Eddie77,

    IMHO, it should be compared with live view. If LV vs TTL shots are similar, then ok. From the picture, it looks ok. What you should do is spend 20-30 minutes with a tripod, MUP, exposure delay 2 sec, single focus point, wide open (50mm 1.4 is fine too) and 3 targets (left, centre & right) if you are not convinced.

    If no issue, good and happy for you.
