Per Nikon's website regarding moire reduction: "Stop the lens down about 3 f/stops from its maximum aperture. This requires you to shoot around f/5.6 or f/8 all the time. Stopping the lens down to a smaller aperture (such as f/11 or f/16) will cause diffraction to lower the sharpness, reducing the benefit of the OLPF. This will easily negate the benefits of the D800E."

My question is, if stopping down the lens will negate the benefits of the D800E, how will that compare to a stopped down image of a D800? Will the D800 sharpness reduction be worse than the D800E, or will the decreased sharpness due to diffraction reach a point where the image from the D800 and D800E are essentially the same?

Here's the link to Nikon's tutorial:
