    What AF issues? I have the D800E, and haven't experienced any AF issues,
    what am I missing?

    I have mine in the studio, I'll do some testing when I get to it.

    Ironically, I recently did a shoot which used a far-right focus point
    throughout the shoot with the camera, which worked fine :)

    Yup! Ironically is not coincidentally.

    It's that English stuff again.

    But I will have a problem proving it.

    My wife and I are the group's Canonians (two of them, anyway) these days. (I
    eschew the word "Canonista" for its Starbuckian cuteness.) But we've had
    nothing churlish to say about the D800. You can look it up.

    If the D800 were plastic, would it be pl√Ętonic?

    He's off, but not that far off. One of the meanings of "ironically"
    is an unexpected result or one that might be at odds with what's
    expected.

    However, "ironically" would normally be chosen when a certain result
    is expected, and there's no such expectation alluded to here. Rather,
    there's a mention of a problem with a focus point technique that seems
    to have been made *after* his successful result.

    "Coincidentally" would be the better choice because he just happens to
    have used a far-right focus point recently, and then the comment
    appeared saying that many people have experienced problems with
    off-center focus points. It's a coincidence if the comment appeared
    shortly after his successful project.

    It's not something I'd normally comment on, but since you bring it
    up...

    "That", what?

  18. Possibly it can be. One definition found by Googling 'ironically' is:
    '2. Used to denote a paradoxical, unexpected, or coincidental situation.'

    So Sandman's usage could be sort of OK, given that it is the far-left
    focus point which is apparently dodgy. There is a video here, if you can
    be bothered to watch it:

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkP1bGRQMdM
    8:21
    'A demonstration of the "Left Autofocus" issue, which afflicts an unknown
    percentage of D800/D800E bodies ...'

    Wikipedia has an entire article about 'Irony'
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irony
    which, among other thing, says:

    'The use of irony may require the concept of a double audience. Fowler's
    A Dictionary of Modern English Usage says:

    ' Irony is a form of utterance that postulates a double audience, consisting
    of one party that hearing shall hear & shall not understand, & another party
    that, when more is meant than meets the ear, is aware both of that more &
    of the outsiders' incomprehension.[4]'

    Clear as mud, if you ask me.
    I'm in the UK. I have a suspicion that our American cousins may, ironically,
    use 'ironically' in a different sense to us Brits.

    Are you pleased with the new D610?
