I downloaded high res samples of an 800 and 800e landscape shot and imported them into Lightroom 4. the samples are from Nikon which are RAW files converted to JPEG with no adjustments. zoomed in at 1:1, there is slight noticeable improvement in sharpness which may be noticeable when printing a poster size print. After applying some basic sharpening to the 800 file, I am hard pressed to see the difference between the two.

I have one of each on order but I am leaning towards to the 800. I posted my rationale above however over the next month I am going to do all I can to make the right decision for me. I am thinking it all comes down to what you want to do in post processing.

My guess is that the 800e will be harder to get and that more photographers than Nikon anticipated are ordering the 800e.

I like that Nikon is giving us choices but I feel that this is leaving a lot of unanswered questions. It would be nice of versions of each camera show up in the wild prior to release for some real world tests. It would certainly help make a more educated decision.
