Hi,

I understand the D800 has anti-aliasing capabilities and the D800E does not. Most of the posts I've read from people imply that the D800E is so much sharper without anti-aliasing. Am I correct in saying that the D800E is the first Nikon without anti-aliasing? If so are they also implying that images from prior Nikon cameras have soft focusing? I find it hard to believe that to be true! How much different can the sharpness be between a D800 & D800E?

I'm not very technical regarding this subject and want to understand what is the difference before I purchase this camera. Until this camera was announced by Nikon I read very little about anti-aliasing . . . what is true vs. splitting hairs by some so called experts?


Also I currently have AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 G ED lens - will it work on a D800?

Thanks for your help.

Jim
