If you only shoot in the studio and at f/9 or smaller get the non-e and save $300 towards another strobe because the will perform identically. Diffraction is a fact of life whenever a wave passes through an aperture, whether light or ocean waves. It has only two components, wavelength and aperture size in relationship to detector size. It occurs regardless of lens. It occurs with pin hole cameras that do not have any lens.
What will it do to your images? Not very much. Few details one the scale of diffraction amplitudes are visible on human perception scales. If you are printing 200% crops then you will see it but no other camera would produce as much detail of the same image features.
If you are shooting a wider variety of apertures get the D800e. I got the D800 solely because in the early days of its release I was lucky to find any D800. All the initial talk of moire patterns turned out to be much ado about nothing. Either is the best imagining machines on the planet.
