Would a camera without the AA filter be a good option for a bird photographer or would the repeating similar feathers create a problem. I have been looking forward for Nikon to introduce the D800 and would use it in crop mode for bird photography but have no idea which version to purchase. I like the idea of increased sharpness without the AA filter but would hate to buy a $4000 white elephant.

Yes, feathers could generate moire if the lines in a feather were the right scale and of sufficient contrast. I wouldn't expect it in all cases. Probably be wise to wait to see what happens when the D800 comes out.

White elephants should be fine without the AA, unless they are striped.
