The Nikon D810 has a lot to live up to. It replaces two SLRs popular among enthusiast and pro photographers in recent times: the D800 and the D800E. These two cameras are identical apart from the fact that the D800E has a weaker anti- aliasing (AA) or optical low-pass filter over its sensor. 

They are especially popular with landscape photography lovers, who want something a bit lighter (and more affordable) than a medium-format camera.
