You might be experiencing a D800 focus issue.   Still being 'sorted out' by the internet community to determine fact from opinion.

One suggestion I have is to use F4 - you need some depth of field anyway, and the D800 has plenty of high ISO performance.

Another suggestion - try a multitude of different AF settings.   What worked on previous cameras may not be the best choice on a D800.    Might as well try 51-pt 3d and see if the face recognition tech in the camera works better than single point...
