The question, obviously, is: Which one gives better "perspective?"    ;)

I was thinking that but dared not say it: now the cat is out of the bag!

Irrelevant when you are familiar with equivalent focal lengths of lenses, as I am. The camera body then makes little difference.  ;)

But the great thing for you is that with this camera you can switch between FX and DX; think of the myriad number of possible perspective tests that you can do!!! :D

I fear that we are falling back into the ultimate torture of the Total Perspective Vortex.

Re: D800E: why OLPF optical elements without OLPF benefits on moire?
« Reply #165 on: February 07, 2012, 04:51:29 PM »

The optical path to the PDAF meter is not changed by removing the OLPF filter, but the optical path to the sensor is, so AF calibrated on the basis that on OLPF is present will be slightly inaccurate if that OLPF is not present.

how so ? silicone surface is not getting closer to the mount if you remove AA filter... it is not like you are trying to shoot IR images...

I think that this topic is now so 'off-topic' that it would be sensible to pick up the discussion on a separate D800/AA filter thread.

Please start one and I will now close this.
