I am shooting the D800 and the D800E.
Mounted on a Gitzo tripod.
Using Nikon Camera Control 2.
Multiple lenses including DC100,50 1.4,etc.
Good natural lighting. Varying amount of light.
51 point or 11 point focus.
The Live view focus is dead nuts on, viewfinder is out of focus.
Strangely the focal point moves slightly between modes.
Both cameras bought months apart exhibit the same problem.
Any ideas other than sending them both back to Nikon ?
I find it hard to believe I need to shoot in live mode all the time to
get decent shots.
