Panasonic v Olympus AA filters?

With the announcement of the Nikon D800 and D800e - the latter identical in every respect expect a lack of an Anti-aliassing filter (and price!) - I wonder how the two brands differ in this respect.

Part of the quality of my G1 has been due to a weak AA filter (how does one express 'measures of AA'?) which I have welcomed. I understand this has been continued with the whole of the G-series.

But I've seen no references to the quality of AA in the new Oly. Have I missed something? Once we've resolved the noise comparisons of the GH2/G3/OM-D will it make a difference?
