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!

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.
