Thanks for sharing. This is a good comparison of the two camera in real world situations. Sounds like you can't go wrong with either camera and they are much closer than the early perceptions.

Recommendation for those who can't decide on a D800 vs D800e.

The AA filter can always be removed. In fact, a company called MaxMax will remove it on most cameras for $450. That's $150 more than buying a D800e but a helluva a lot less expensive than buying an D800e and deciding you would rather have the D800.

Makes sense?

;-)
Guess that would be an option, but I would think that a more likely scenario is that you might want to put the AA back <on>.
It's the more and color stuff that has me worried.

True, you could look at it that way.

My point of view would be buy the D800. If after using the D800 you feel you still need more acuity/resolution, then have the AA filter removed.

If on the other hand, you are happy with the results of the D800, then no need to spend more money!
