I ordered the non-E version. To truly exploit the potentially marginal increase in resolution offered by the E version, you would need to be printing at very large sizes, approaching 30" x 20" at 240dpi to start seeing the benefits. Form most output, you will be downsampling images and doing output sharpening. I see a tremendous benefit potential in having all of those extra pixels in the original then downsampling to more conventional print sizes or screen, in terms of percieved sharpness and overall noise reduction.

I was initially hoping for more of a D700s low-light machine akin to the D3s, and skeptical about a mega pixel monster, but I'm warning up to the creative potential that this camera seems to offer. Except for the file sizes that is!

I will be keeping my D700 for high frame rate stuff like sports.
