Oh so true!. My D800 had the Lt A/f issue but was repaired by Nikon succesfully. Moire was never a problem. I should have been clearer in my statement. Personally I'm not sure if moire is even an issue with the E, is it not to be expected with a camera that does not have a AA filter? And you're right, then theres the argument if you go with the E is it that much sharper? They say with proper post sharpening the 800 is as sharp as the E, but you can sharpen the E as well. I do know if you take advantage of the 800's video, the E is then not a consideration . That being said I do miss my 800 in the studio. I did not give the 800 a fair try out as I went to the comfort of the D3S, what I knew best and what felt more comfy in my hands. I especially miss ISO 100 in the studio. ISO 100 is a cleaner file by the Nth degree and allows easier strobe use when approaching the lowest settings. I will be getting another D800.
