I am going non-E version. I do mainly landscape and nature but here is my rationale.

If Nikon did not release this E version, having the AA filter removed is not something I would have ever considered. It is much easier to sharpen in post processing than it is to remove moire.....and in some cases it might cause throw aways. After post processing of files from the d800/d800e, the differences will likely be negligible to all but the pixel peepers or those that look at prints with their nose inches from the picture. The D800 will become my go to camera for general shooting. I don't want moire to even be a thought on my mind.

At the end of the day if for some unlikely reason I decide that I need the E, I would likely be able to easily sell the non-E version. It might not be the same the other way around.

Is my reasoning not logical or flawed? Maybe, but it has gotten me comfortable with my decision.

I just switched from Canon and am currently camera less. I also have a D4 on order which I will be keeping along with the D800. At this point I just want a camera in my hands.
