    Both fixed. They were very good about the whole thing. I brought in 1 D800, 1 D800E and I had my D4 with me as well. They checked both the D800s and confirmed that both had the left focusing issue problem. They even asked for my D4 and said that while I was there, might as well check. They did and told me its all good.

    The way I understand it, Nikon did not admit or have a solution for the longest time. Individual service centers were doing their best to help owners but it was really up to the individual tech and there was no fixed solution. Since around Photokina they have actual processes in place to test for the problem and a set way to fix it. This makes it very straight forward.

    I am glad I did it this late because it went very smoothly. It did take a long time but I rather it be done well.

    Yeah I had friends who sent it in when the problem was first detected. They sent the body in and was told after a day or two that it was fixed. Unfortunately it was not or they had just put in some lens calibration values.

    Now it took 2 weeks and every thing is perfect.

    The left side focusing issues only affected the first batch of D800/E bodies.

    I promised to post something on underwater use of D800.

    D800 in Ikelite Housing.

    Tokina 10-17mm DX FE zoom used as FX lens at 16mm



    AFD 60mm Micro Nikkor and Kenko 1.4x TC


    Traveling on work now, no time to post 100% crop.

    Fast AF and beautiful colour rendering. Much better than my old D300. A match for colour with the Fujifilm S2Pro, but much faster in response and higher resolution.

    Got a quick question. Was hoping someone could help.

    Is calibration necessary? And is it free of charge for equipment under warranty? Must both the body and the lens be under warranty?

    Thanks! D

    I think the shape a bit different and buttons also slightly stiff and of course price big different but in the end I still prefer the original.

    Original is 4x of 3rd party price. That's the main reason why majority picked the 3rd party.

    Physically wise, there's some slight difference. Firstly the original is less bulkier so when mounted, it will make your D800/E less elongated (vertically). This means that it will be closer to the D4/D3 etc series. When the grip is closer, it makes the center of gravity closer to the body itself and it's nicer to hold, especially when using heavy telephoto lens.

    Original:


    Pixel:


    The rubber grip itself is also of a more comfortable material, same as the D800/E body. Also note the third party's grip isn't fully rubber gasket-ed. The original is made weather-sealed.

    Of course I still consider the MB-D12 ridiculously heavy. But when comfort and weather sealing is concerned, I've no choice but to pick the original.

    Search around the reviews. Here's one of them:

    D700/800(E) with MB-D10/12 is actually a bit larger than D3 and D4 series. $500 for a battery grip is quite ridiculous but people are paying $1000 for a Mamiya 645D grip, $9000 for a Hassy T/S adaptor.
