Thank you, but I thought we were referring to modified DSLRs only. I am aware of the increased filtration with each successive generation.

However, this does not seem to apply to the sensors yet.

From Thom Hogans review of the D80:

The D80 is a poor IR or UV camera. Each successive Nikon round of
DSLRs seem to have more and more IR and UV filtering, and the
D80/D200 generation are no exception. If you want to shoot that
type of image, you're either going to have to hold onto those old
D1's and D100's, or have a newer DSLR modified to remove that
filtration.

I frankly don't know anything about IR photography but I think he
does. Something to consider.
Cheers, Peter.
