and the moiree?
so could you compare the "less" sharpness from the D800?
i mean for panos: is the possible negative moiree effect you could have worth the more sharpness of the D800E?
(PS: no moiree on the images...)
My experiences with MF-backs without AA filter and Leica is: moiree comes rarely. IF itÂ´s there you can comomensate it locally without having to treat the whole image.
Draw a selection around the area where moiree is and use a filter to compensate it (CaptureOne, Phocus, Photoshop as examples) work well.
Of course you loose a bit resolution - but you can select the area where you loose it.
Fine geometrical structures in fabrics or metal-woven objects are sensitive to moiree. Most motives are not.
Look on the Nikon site and compare the D800 images to the D800 images.
I definitely would prefer the D800E for "normal photography. It would be interesting to test a D800E for stitching with APG . . . because APG might react to moiree in a rather complex way
So: if youÂ´re willing to do ANY effort to optimise images for stitching (like i use to do) treating moirees with selective compensation is the way to go.
But as i said: moiree isnÂ´t always visible.
In the end itÂ´s not sharpness - itÂ´s simply the more natural look of details in D800E images which attracts me
