Moiré disaster on the E-5

A friend needed some head shots for a new job he started and he asked me to do the shoot. I brought my E-5 with ZD-50 — as well as my E-PL5.

I stayed with the E-5, though once I got back to my computer, I saw that his suit was turned into wood grain from all the moiré. Rather than reshoot, I used a gausian blur on the suit.

A real pain... and I wonder if the E-PL5 would have been bothered by it. I know my E-1 or E-330 would have done just fine.

Others are forewarned about this potential problem, due to the missing AA filter. I only edited the best 12-15 shots... but I would cry if there were 5 guys wearing the same suit at a wedding!

Sorry... the moiré pattern only seems to show on certain magnifications. This, at least, shows that it was a fairly ordinary suit.
