I am new to DSLR's so please bear with a tyro. I used to shoot medium format so opted for the D800E as I prefer big enlargements when the shot is right. I also understand that the moiré issue has been pretty much overblown but does exist. My question is if moiré will be an obvious issue would it be feasible to very slightly defocus the lens to approximate the effect of the optical low pass filter in the D800? I am sure this may be a gross exaggeration of the effect, but was curious if it might work in extreme cases such as architecture which I seldom image. I also still have my Softars from Hasselblad days and wonder if they might do the trick when used on portraits where clothing pattern is an issue. BTW, my camera will not arrive until this Friday so I cannot check these out myself but hoped this extremely knowledgeable group might have some comments.
