Yes, I understand that point. However, diffraction does not necessarily make all cameras equal. The question I am asking is whether others think that Nikon is saying that all advantage of the higher resolution of the E model, compared to the D800 regular model, is lost when the lens is stopped down past f/11 or f/16. In other words I read Nikon's statement to say that the resolution of the regular model will be equal to that of the E model at these stopped down apertures. If that is the case it seems to me that the E model offers no advantage for the landscape shooter. If there is no advantage to the E for landscape, and one does not shoot in a studio environment, why risk the possible problem with moire?

The reason I was leaning toward the E model is because I thought that the added resolution would be an advantage in landscape photography. If that is not the case it seems that I would be better served to stay with the regular model in order to avoid any issue with moire.
