Can we talk about this? According to the rumors, there will be two versions of the D800, one with the antialiasing filter removed and one with it included. The one with it removed will allegedly be more expensive than the one with it.

For the sake of argument, lets just assume the rumors are true. I don't want to debate how valid the rumor is, I just want to understand it.

I have two questions: First, why would the one without the filter be more expensive than the one with it? Generally, when you remove something you remove cost and lower the price.

Second, can someone with more technical knowledge explain to me the advantages of having, or not having this filter?

In other words, lets' assume I am going to buy a D800 - Which should I buy and why?

Thanks,
