So it's been 5 years...but what is the best solution for this problem? I definitely can confirm the exact same issue with a D800 + SB-700 and SB-900. Did everyone just turn off the af-assist and call it good or did you just get fed up and go with a D810? I am curious and I'm sure others are that are still searching for a resolution...

I like taking pictures.

This is never going to be fixed. None of those products are made any more and nikon doesn't care about them. It has something to do with the SB900 mine has this as well,  but if I switch to the SB700 or to my remote trigger then the AF assist is fine and focus is dead accurate.
