#14. "RE: Is Nikon Telling Us That D800E Is Not A Good Choice For Landscapes?" In response to In response to 7 Wed 21-Mar-12 02:41 PM by jim thomas
Allow me to comment on this statement:
"But the sharpest portion of your image will have more detail and be even sharper on the D800 than any earlier camera. The D800E inches up a bit more on sharpness and detail beyond the D800."
The question I am asking is whether that statement is accurate if one is shooting landscapes. Nikon says that at the small (f/11, f/16, f/22 etc.) apertures normally used in landscape photography the advantage of the E is lost. I read that to mean that for landscape use the D800 will produce photos with equal resolution and sharpness as those produced by the E model. If that is the case I am inclined to buy the D800 rather than the E in order to avoid any issue with moire. Others will, of course, have other needs and preferences.
Edited on 3/21/12 to change "wide" to "small (f/11, f/16, f/22 etc.). Thanks to Larry for bringing this mistake to my attention.
