"Moire and D7100"


Mumbai, IN
          

Has anyone experienced moire with the D7100? Since there is no OLPF, the chances of moire could increase but I was unable to produce moire even though I tried to create it by photographing fabric with very fine lines. Surprisingly, my D7000 does produce moire!

Would certainly like to know the opinions and experiences of Nikonians in this regard.

Rohinton

I think with the high pixel density of the D7100, you will most likely only see Moire at wide apertures.

The D7100 has a pixel pitch of about 3.9 microns. The diffraction spot size of green light at f/4 is about 5.2 microns. So at that point I would think that diffraction is sort of acting as the AA filter. So you would most likely only see Moire when shooting with lenses at f/2.8 or faster.

Nope, no experience of moire and I was sort of expecting it in the feather details of birds. Instead I am finding I am rarely having to sharpen an image due to the removal of the AA filter.

With very limited experience on my D7100 I have seen no Moire, perhaps 100 shots so far, so very, very limited. Today I hope to increase that count by several times over. Also in prowling around and looking at D7100 pictures I have seen next to nothing, perhaps one picture. Birders seem to be attracted to this camera and there are a plethora of bird shots out there, one would expect to see something in their feathers but they seem to be clean shots.

Yep, I have taken 600 shots nearly all of birds in just over a week with different lenses. The annoying thing is that if I'd know the difference the removal of the AA filter made to sharpness before I bought the D7100 and before I bought my D800, I'd have bought the D800E.

I am running out of expletives to describe how I feel about the D7100, but today's is "fabutastical"

Just came back from Costa Rica with a lot of bird pics. Approximately 3000 without a sign of moire so far. Extremely happy with this camera's performance. Took my D7000 as a back up since I just had a week to play with the D7100 before I departed and it never left the camera bag.
