"Lifepixel will "convert" your D800 to D800E for $500.00"

Buy the wrong D800 model? Your "mistake" (if it really was that) will cost you $500 -- not $300 -- to "fix." Lifepixel can replace your D800's AA filter with an optically equivalent non-AA filter for $500. Other camera models for as low as $400.

We all know that Nikon's own D800E filter pack isn't simply a removal or replacement. The wave plate is swapped for an optical glass component, and a different second OLPF redirects the light back to its original trajectory. I'd be interested in knowing more details about exactly what Lifepixel does beyond what I've read so far.

They have done good work for me in the past with more traditional mods, most recently converting my D3200 to IR. I'm not sure this conversion is worth the trouble and expense for a D800, since an actual D800e is available. It might be interesting to see what LP can do with a D4 or D3x...
