"RE: Is Nikon Telling Us That D800E Is Not A Good Choice For Landscapes?"
"...Stopping the lens down to a smaller aperture (suchas f/11 or f/16) will cause diffraction ... will easilynegate the benefits of the D800E."This has nothing to do with the D800E. If you are after sharpness, you should not stop your lens beyond this diffraction threshold with any 35mm SLR, digital or film.Using the "sweet spot" for a lens (usually about 2 or 3 stops below it maximum aperture) is nothing new either.You can still raise the ISO setting for daytime landscapes without worrying about noise.
