The much anticipated full-frame D800 has been announced by Nikon. There is not just one new camera but two. The difference between the D800 and the D800E is the absence of the optical low-pass filter on the D800E model. This in essence will give you a sharper final image but at the expense of moiré. It will be interesting to see how well the E model is going to be received by photographers.
Here are some quick specs:
- 36.3 megapixel 35.9 x 24mm CMOS sensor
