D800e discouraged for amatuers?

I have read previews that say Nikon discourages amateurs from buying a D800e, and I don't see why they would do that. If anything it is exactly the right version for amateurs. We aren't selling anything, and many of us shoot for ourselves primarily. If we blow one, so what? The detail I have seen in sample images is incredible. What amateur doesn't want that?

It seems to me that pros are the shooters who have to play it safe. They certainly don't want wedding photos ruined, or architectural photos. I'm sure other disciplines also have lots of opportunity for moire.

While it is true amateur photography covers a myriad of genres, I would think anyone who likes to photograph wildlife, sports and landscapes would be all over the "e" version. I wonder if Nikon will build enough of them.
