D800/E - Shutter Not Firing Intermittently

Anyone figure out why the shutter hangs from time to time on the D800/E. I was shooting some pictures (dancing), and had it on CL - I typically do not fire off too many shots in a row, but was doing a little bit of it today.

Can't figure out if the problem is with the memory card buffer filling up or a problem with the focusing. For weddings and sporting events, this inability to fire the shutter as needed would be a disaster.
