Why Nikon asks for more money for a D800E than a D800? Is that a "dumb" Nikon policy?

On the one hand, the price difference is so small (only 10%) - anyone who can afford one can afford the other.

On the other hand, it looks very much like the main difference is in firmware, just as we see in the limitations of the D3200 that could have had some of the extra features of the D5200.

If this camera had stronger competition in the specs from Canon or Sony, they wouldn't get away with this. But at 36mp, they can. But they're also p!ssing off some customers in the process - which seems counter-intuitive.

It's not firmware. It's a different filter stack on the sensor.
