The point is you don't have to accept the D800E is always going to produce unnaturally sharp images. You have options .

As we just discussed, you can open up or stop down outside the sharpest aperture to make the lens act like an AA filter.

You are right - and this is why I will not buy such a camera.

You can reduce sharpening where aliasing is an issue.

Aliasing happens before sharpening has been applied.

And finally, you can apply some low radius gaussian blur to simulate an AA filter either to the entire image or selectively, smoothing sharp edges.

Wrong, you can't. Once you record the false detail, you have to apply very strong blur to hide it, much stronger than the AA filter. Why don't you try your blurring skills with the image I posted?

Your comments show that you do not understand what aliasing is even though this has been explained well in this thread.
