Default Nikon D800 vs. D800E

Which to buy; the Nikon D800 or D800E. As a prosumer, with the high resolution seen in the D800 36.3 megapixel series, is it necessary to have a camera without the optical high pass filter removed (as the D800E) with the side effects of morie'?

Depends on what you photograph. Moire is caused by subject detail smaller than the camera can resolve. It is there, the camera cannot ignore it, but also cannot resolve it accurately, so you get some false garbage (moire patterns). The AA filter blurs the high resolution stuff to remove the problem.

But 36 megapixels can resolve more than 12 megapixels, so problem should not come up as often, even without the filter. But, move that same detail farther away, it becomes smaller, and it could occur. Perhaps this new area may be too small to be much trouble? I would assume the model WITH the AA filter uses a much more mild filter than before?

Without the AA filter the images will be sharper, so for some photogs it's necessary or a want for them to get the maximum sharpness available.

If you don't know which is best, you probably should go with the D800. I will get the D800E. I've seen comparisons of scenes shot by both cameras. D800 images can be sharpened to be close to D800E images, but the crispness of the starting D800E image is exciting. The new moire reduction tool in the accompanying software is supposed to be impressive. For important shots, I'll will do some stopped-down captures where diffraction mitigates moire. I can't wait.

D800/E isn't being packaged with Capture NX for North America but will be included for European sales. Sucks for us in North America unless we are paying less $ for the camera to begin with

If you stop down too much to get rid of moire you will also loose sharpness/detail. catch 22

I thought we were getting the new Capture NX with the D300E. Bummer. I will put stopped down images underneath sharp images with moire and just erase any trouble spots on the top image not sacrificing overall sharpness.

Well before I make a decision between the two bodies, I need to see full raw production camera shots, of the same images, with both cameras. It will be interesting to see just how much more actual detail there is in a D800e image vs a post sharpened D800 image.

I can be wrong as I read these things in the internet but the D800 does come with ViewNX. I also checked Nikons website and I don't see CaptureNX being included for purchased made in England also

I called my local Nikon dealer and he said he didn't yet know. Nikon USA mentions the software but doesn't say it's being packaged with the D800E. DPReview says that it is. I hope they are right.

At the Nikon website if you view the included accessories for the D800 it only list ViewNX as the only software supplied. I also checked the forum tab on the D800 product page and someone asked if it included CaptureNX and a Nikon Rep. just re-hashed the list of accessories, no CaptureNX.
