"Another minor mishap with my D800e...."

Yesterday I was shooting for fun with my two cameras while both were hanging on my sides. At one point I picked up D800e and it wouldn't auto focus. I could still take the picture though and everything seems to function but no AF. I had 24-120mm lens on.
Obviously I have tried all the buttons and switches and still nothing.
The only thing I did not do is to turn the camera off and on.
At some point while playing with all of this I zoomed the lens and lo and behold camera started focusing again.
This was the first time this happened. I am on the latest firmware.
Obviously I can't reproduce this behavior again otherwise I could send it in.

Anyone seen anything like it? At least I was shooting for fun when it happened but what if it happened while I am on the red carpet?
I would be very pissed!!!!!
