That's right. It's a good combo on the D700 but at the resolution of the D800 it's weak. But unless you're printing large it will look as good or better than you'd get off this combo with a D700 which has made many photographers happy.

How would that be any different than using the D800 at a given print size or display resolution?  This is the same argument as the idea that the d700 is somehow better at high ISO because 100% crops look better from it (even though they're 1/3 as much information).  Just because the effects aren't as noticeable at native resolution on a D700 doesn't make it somehow a better camera to use with this combo.
