An interesting read with excellent examples of the minor difference between the 2 bodies.

The 36MP D800 was a surprise camera from Nikon, but the real surprise to me is the D800E. It's such a niche-market camera. I think it's incredibly cool, and it's going to be very interesting to see if it's the start of a new AA-filterless tradition (will there be a D900E?), or if it will prove to be a one-time quirky wonder.

It's going to be very hard for me to decide between the two. Since the e won't be readily available for some time in numbers, for now I'll just wait and read.

I don't see enough detail improvement with the E to warrant the moire issues. Its so subtle as to not matter. I certainly wouldn't pay an extra $300 for it!

I have a feeling this will not be a repeated experiment by Nikon.

Agreed but kudos to them for trying.
Gotta shake up the lazy giant! :D

Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

Yep, me neither. I was really leaning toward getting the "e" later this year, but I just don't see a $300 difference. Kind of like what I saw when I evaluated the 17-40 and 16-35 here over Christmas.

DigitalRev comparison:
Bottom line, unless you're doing a wall size printing, difference between the two versions are minimal.
