Am I mistaken?
A couple more thoughts, this was the first time I have ran into this sort of issue with the D4. Have shot tons of fabrics in the studio and thus far its been moire free while my D3 is quite problematic in this regard. So this image sort of surprised me. That out of the way in general the smaller the pixel the less likely it is to present moire so perhaps the 800e in this case would not have exhibited this trait in the first place… maybe.
However at least with one of the images available for download on Nikons website I did notice some moire on a 800e image, not much but it was there. Its the image of the Japanese woman in komona (sp?).
At this point the jury is still out on how prone to moire the camera will be, but theoretically is can be addressed in NX2. It is worth noting when I converted this raw file shown above in NX2 I did NOT have the button checked on for moire reduction. In other words our are seeing the basic raw conversion which left me scratching my head, how?
Unfortunately ACR/LR does not have a moire reduction control.
