I seem to recall a similar thread about 12 months ago when you were having issues shooting at 1.4, you posted a hand held image of a man with a baby in arms and were concerned about the focus accuracy when two moving items were involved, maybe you still have that image you could post to illustrate the point ?

You recall wrong, and anyway it is perfectly possibly to get a high hit rate at f/1.4 in such a situation. The D700 handled it for 5 years...downsizing from 36mp the D800s files are still often out and can be seen in a 12MP resize. Think again.

So why not use the D700 and save the forum from your non stop whining.
