On another note: Ken (Rockwell, that is) is going gaga over the D800. Quote: "Actually, I'm opting for the D800E because I test lenses for a living." Now there he totally looses it, although he brags about being an engineer and all. If you test lenses or any other equipment transforming analog real-world signals into the digital domain you would want to avoid aliasing artifacts like the devil. Because they introduce false signals into your test-results and invalidate them.
So much for sound, scientifically approved test setups Sad
Expect some serious bragging from Ken about the ultimate in sharpness that he has found without knowing whether he was seeing artifacts or real resolution. Sad!
Thomas, where did you see it? This is what I read and it seemed to me that he was actually preferring just a regular D800:

The D800E is for tweaks and professional lens testers like me. I wouldn't spend my extra money on it unless I either was a tweak, or really had my technique down and printed at 30 x 45" all day. If you're shooting at f/11 or smaller, or printing at least several feet or meters wide, you'll never see the extra sharpness of the D800E, but everyone will see the D800E's moiré at any print size on fabrics or screens. If you're a tweak, you'll love the D800E, but for photography and for normal people, stick with theD800 for better pictures.
