even with the firmware update when I'm shooting portraits at f1.4/f1.8 too many OOF shots... tried a few fast primes wide open (85 1.8 G, Sigma 35 1.4). Could be user error of course, but I don't think so.

Fast primes are always tough for any camera and require pinpoint accuracy and focus point placement.  Wide open and you better catch the eyelashes and not the eyebrow.  Focus errors are even more visible at the pixel level with the D800.
