Summary: It is leaking lubricant or oil on the 2nd replacement body.... see update below! 1st I did was to test the left focus to see if I have the problem as some people reported. I tested it on all 6 Nikon lens (24mm (D), 60mm (D), 85mm (D), 300mm(D), 17-55mm (DX, G) and a 24-120 zoom (G)) and am glad to...
Summary: More of an seasoned amateur so went for D800. Have used earlier DX frame formats only, so my personal experience was sour. Tried D800 with 28-300 FX Lens and realized that the unit had known left focus issues. I used FoCal to validate that. I expect 3-Grand SLR to work right out of the box.
Summary: Well the camera is wonderful and has all the features plenty of us were dreaming about just a year ago. However, proliferating amount of cameras has Left AF issue. This is my first D800 from Amazon and third overall (previous two came from B&H). Now I will just wait for D600.
Summary: The first d800 I received had focusing problems (more noticeable with 24-70 and 70-200 lenses). I took a slew of test shots to make sure I wasn't the problem and almost sent it to Nikon but glad I didn't, Amazon's customer service was awesome.
Summary: I ordered my D800 from a local shop soon after it came out. I received it back in March. From the beginning I could tell something was wrong with autofocus but it took a long time to determine I had the left focus sensor problem.
Summary: Waited three months for this camera. It received such amazing reviews and testimonials I was thrilled when it finally came. Unfortunately my copy also seems to suffer from the apparently growing left point Auto Focus problem.
Summary: I've had two and both had the awful AF issue. There is something about this camera that is wrong, and Nikon don't seem to have anything to say about it. The image quality is good, but there's a touch of the Emperor's New Clothes here.
Summary: I received my D800 back in April, in fact it was April the 23rd as it was my birthday. At the moment the camera is still at Nikon, this is the 2nd repair! The same fault is bugging the camera. It's all to do with the focusing and lack of focus.
Summary: Nikon ha fatto un grande tonfo con questa macchina io personalmente come nikonista sono profondamente deluso. La qualità deincolori è scadente alle volte imbarazzante. Il video pieno di moire o difietti e semore con una luce decisamente inferiore alla 5d canon . Pessimo prodotto. Non compratela.
Excerpt: Для сравнения сделал несколько кадров параллельно на А77 и Д800 начиная от изо 800 и выше, ожидал некоего чуда, т.к. на мой взгляд 77 шумит безбожно начиная с изо800 (из за этого появилось большое желание прикупить что-нить для плохих условий съемки).
Pros: 1)Никон! 2)Большая, солидная, тяжелая
Cons: 1)Ужасный камерный джипег 2)Шум начиная с минимальных изо 3)Тяжеленные равы 4)С цветами в плохих условиях какая-то бедеа, вытянуть невозможно 5)!!!изо завышено на стоп!!! 6)Неудобная какая-то(может субъективно)
