Wide aperture lenses wide open on the D800

How do you find the D800 focusing 1.4, 1.8 lenses wide open? Possibly compared to the D700?

I am reading that the D800 has difficulties nailing focus with fast lenses wide open. I can image it's more of a user error but, I have read this so frequently that I started to wonder. And while contemplating a D800. I am a D700 user.

Is there a truth to it due to 36 million pixels, or the AF system or is it just gossip and nonsense?
