The D800E is a specialized product designed with one thing in mind, pure definition. The D800E incorporates an optical low pass filter (OLPF) without anti-aliasing properties to facilitate the sharpest images possible and is a great option for RAW shooters who are in a position to control light, distance and their subject to the degree where they can mitigate the risk of moiré and any false color.1-Year Limited Warranty.
From the Manufacturer
The Nikon D800E
The Ultimate Attention to Detail
The D800E is a specialized camera that differs from the D800 in just one way yet requires some extra care to get optimal results. Use the information below to determine if the D800 or D800E is right for you.
D800 and D800E
Which is right for you?
Every Nikon DSLR camera uses an optical low pass filter (OLPF) in front of its sensor to slightly blur the image at a pixel level in order to reduce the occurrence of false colors and moiré that can appear when shooting repetitive and/or fine patterns. For the vast majority of photographers, the D800 provides an ideal balance between sharpness and effectively prevented moiré and false color, ideal for shooting using all file formats. D800E is a specialized camera that removes the "effect" of the OLPF, which results in a slight gain in sharpness and resolution and is recommended for studio and still life professionals but carries an increased possibility that moiré and false color will appear.

What else is different?
Other than the very slight image quality differences described above, the D800 and D800E perform exactly the same. Focus speed, exposure metering, shooting speed, movie recording, accessory compatibility, control location and function, and all other aspects are identical.

Lease, usually finding all the faults no one else does, yet 2 years in, I still like the camera. I wish it has an articulating LCD, I wish it had built in WiFi, a more intuitive intervalometer that I still haven't figured out, more than 30 second shutter timer, a better battery door (The camera is weather sealed weather resistant after all yet this seems a bit cheesy and weak), but the camera is overall rather intuitive to use and takes phenomenal photos. Battery life is adequate for me too, though I know it's not rated on the top tier. Compared to many other expensive purchases that have become obsolete well before their value has been worthwhile, this is so far holding up in enjoyment factor.
The 800e is an extraordinary piece of engineering and is an image making machine. It is ok with my film-era Nikon glass. But it is out of control wonderful with the 85 1.4 (also purchased through Amazon).
This camera has made me shoot more carefully and be less willing to spend time in trying to correct images for clients. In fact the last few jobs I have been able to pass images over to the client for their retouchers to work on.
Is this better than my old Canon gear? Yes (But so is my iPhone). Is the D800e better than whatever? Possibly. I don't really know. I do know that until I can afford a Mamiya with an 80MP back, this is going to be a money making machine for me. Funny thing.. just now I don't even want something that precious to work with. My companion camera might be a D4.
The 800e allows me to get exactly the results I expect to get when acquiring visual data in a way which was never possible when shooting 4x5 or 8x10. There is no going back after using this precision machine.
Boy, was I wrong. This camera has taken my landscape photography to the next level. This camera, combined with the 14-24mm lens, brings an unprecedented level of sophistication to my photos. The amount of detail and color captured on top of what the D600 has to offer is just stunning. I highly recommend this camera. If you can afford it, don't hesitate, and don't settle for anything less.
