I cant tell from the brochures if the D800E has a feature of in-camera disabling the anti-alias filter, or just a filter in this camera that does not anti-alias, meaning ultimately there is no choice to alias or to not with this model. see:

"The D800E incorporates an optical filter with all the anti-aliasing properties removed in order to facilitate the sharpest images possible."

"In-camera disabling of the aliasing and moiré pattern reduction operation performed by the optical low-pass filter built into the D800E allows light passing through a NIKKOR lens to strike photodiodes directly for even greater resolution."

I'm thinking NO CHOICE.
