Nice detail on the face. I'm feeling good so far about this camera.

I wonder though, how this exact same shot would compare with the filter on?

Did you perhaps have a second filter-body to test with too?

P.S. You lucky sod! 8-)

Is this from a D800E and not D800? If it is, there appears to be a significant lack of any moire in the subject's fabric (as opposed to the example Nikon have on their site) and, I for one, am very glad I chose to pre-order a D800E. The detail in that photo is awesome!

letting aside ,the picture is obviousely an art statement , it is the fashion preference for asian countries ,to have very pale complexion , many parts of the world prefere lighter skin tones and many go to extremes of adding face whitening products ,I find it equally strange to see models from the western world having skin tones that resemble a well cooked lobster ,but I do not blame it on the camera .

its obviousely an arty shot where the photographer ,has used whatever means to achieve a remarkable picture , that met their needs .

Yes, it was taken at a different distance than the moire example on this page:
http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d800/features01.htm

By changing the distance, the pattern in the fabric didn't hit the frequency that causes moire.

It is called makeup. I think the OP was joking.

Thanks for clearing that up and the link to the other samples which I hadn't seen. I'll enjoy drooling over those tonight when I can get on my home PC with a quicker internet link.

Nah - it still wouldn't have been funny - idiotic more like; semi-slapstick (= obvious) humour is un-funny.
