3. The D800E still suffers moire but it's rare enough to make the camera a specialist tool for those who don't shoot fabric, architecture and the like. Soon enough we'll be using sensors that don't need AA filters because thy'll sample at such a high frequency they'll be redundant. At that point expect people to start complaining about the appearance of moire when then downsize.

Maybe its because of the market the D4 is targetted at. I am sure sports photog's, fashion photogs and news Photog's dont want to deal with Moire ??

Whereas D800e photog's are more specialist and will deal with moire if it occur's without a worry.

This analogy with cars is familiar, BUT you assume that car makers ALWAYS design cars with ultimate peformnce in mind. They dont and many choices they make are compromses. While I am not convinced that is what Nikon has done. The D800E's AA filter assembly could possibly be just an Expedient way of removing the filter rather than the BEST way.

Is there any more perfromance to be had? Who knows. Untill someone pulls the AA filter assembly.

In lots of cases LESS IS MORE.
