"RE: To 'E' or not to 'E'..."

For some reason, Thom thinks bird feathers might be OK and I hope he is correct It was just a quick comment one day on his blog saying that there is enough irregularity in feathers, them being non-man-made, that he thought it would be OK. He may be basing it on his assistant who has been shooting a non-AA D3X (and other non-AA cameras) for a while now. Eric please keep us posted with your 800E experiences!

I have four areas of my shooting I have potential concerns about:
- bird feathers;
- architecture. I tend do shoot this while on vacations with wife and family.
- video. On TV the other day on a reality-TV show I saw some ghastly moire on a guys suit that was glowing and weaving (Imagine moire that writhes and pulses) It was a nightmare, the guy looked like a clown with a pulsing suit. I believe Nikon implies the 800E video won't be any more prone than the 800 for video moire due to "processing" IIRC.
- fabrics on actors on stage. This latter one though, I am rationalizing away because I would be typically shooting at least ISO 3200 in low light and one starts to lose detail at very high ISO, so I think it just won't provoke the high frequency detail that causes moire. Any comments on this high ISO theory of mine?

We already know that stopping down to invoke diffraction or changing angles and distance will eliminate moire (if you happen to detect it at shooting time). How about the high ISO theory - with the associated loss of detail, will that prevent moire also?

Best regards, SteveK
