I've shot a lot with a Leica M9 in all kinds of settings and it has never been an issue. All you folks running scared from the D800E will regret it in the end. The lack of an AA filter on the M9 is something that really makes the sensor special, and the D800E is going to blow it away.

Time will tell, but I expect the D800E to produce heavy moire in the video mode. And with moving frames, this will hurt the watcher's eyes ...

Yep...and I just posted a quote from Philip Bloom that warns people of this in no uncertain terms...but most found his advice of zero value. Amazing to me.

Why did Nikon create video samples from ONLY the D4 and D800...and not the E? I'm not suggesting the E will be useless as a video cam at all, but it IS asking for trouble...significant trouble.
