In theory, moiré should be a frequent problem with the Nikon D800E, since it lacks a conventional optical low pass filter (OLPF).
In practice, moiré does not occur very often with the D800E, and even the D800 shows moiré under similar circumstances.
The example on this page shows a scenario chosen to provide moiré. Even so, various other lenses on this same test scene did NOT show the moiré patterns shown here, which seem to be a worst-case scenario, or close to it.
Provoking moiré with the D800E requires a precise spatial frequency on the stonework with the thin vertical grooves to provoke the problem. In short, it required some effort to find an example this obvious. Had the camera been slightly farther away, the problem would likely disappear, as it would alter the spatial frequency of the details on the sensor.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
