Generally every Nikon DSLR camera uses an optical low pass filter (OLPF) in front of its sensor that may slightly blur the image at a pixel level so as to reduce the occurrence of false colours and moiré when shooting fine patterns. For majority of photographers the Nikon D800 gives an ideal balance between sharpness and preventing moiré and false colour, ideal for shooting in all file formats. The Nikon D800E is a specialized camera that removes the “effect” of the OLPF to gain slightly better sharpness and resolution. It is recommended for studio and still life professionals but carries possibility that moiré and false colour will appear. (The sample photos were from Nikon official site.)
