So, let's just get this right. We can pay extra for having the model with the AA filter properties removed? That seems to suggest that we pay more, but we get less in the D800e. Interesting equation!

The fact that there are two versions appears to suggest that Nikon currently does not have the technical capability to include a switchable AA filter as an option in just one model. Sure, the AA filter is probably a physical device, but why does Nikon lack the innovation to find a tech solution? Have they rushed this model to market for some reason, rather than waiting longer to provide a single body solution?

The announcement of the D800 ahead of any mention of a DX format D300S replacement also says something about Nikon's perception of the future of DX. If the D800 can mask FX at 36Mp down to DX at 14-15Mp, where does that leave the future of a D400? The D400 was already more overdue than a D700 replacement, so Nikon possibly seems to have voted for FX as its preference?
