As to the D800E, the possibility of the moire problem is the same as seen in 
the Leica Digitals, both M's and the DMR, and I think, all medium format 
cameras, this has never been a big deal in any of my shooting with the M8 or 
R8DMR.  But my thing is, why do they charge extra to leave this filter out?  
Seems to me this would be a cost savings.  I would buy one if I could get 
most of my money in the D700 could be captured. ;)

Two things... 

First, I suppose it's not impossible that the price of used D700s will 
remain stable or possibly even increase after a short market hiatus, if 
demand for full-frame Nikon DSLRs increases overall?? That's 
counter-intuitive and at best wild speculation.? More substantively... 

Second, the "E" version is a fascinating acknowledgement of different 
photographic needs and the use (or non-use?) of technology to serve those 
needs, as stated in the Nikon sales lit: 

The ultimate attention to detail ? the D800E 

Nikon engineers have developed a unique alternative for those seeking the 
ultimate in definition. The D800E incorporates an optical filter with all 
the anti-aliasing properties removed in order to facilitate the sharpest 
images possible. 
This is an ideal tool for photographers who can control light, distance and 
their subjects to the degree where they can mitigate the occurrence of 
moir?. Aside from the optical filter, all functions and features are the 
same as on the D800. 

Note: The D800E carries an increased possibility that moir? and false color 
will appear, compared to the D800. IR cut and antireflective coating 
properties of the optical filter remain the same with both versions.

I would say the same for my almost new D700, but I would probably not get 
enough out of it to get close enough to buy the D800E, so I guess the D700 
will have to do. ;)

Looks like my almost new D7000 will be up for sale soon!
