if still possible , try to replace your 5D2 with D800E.

the D800 is never going to be as sharp as the D800E.

True, but from the RAW samples I have played with I feel like the small benefit of the D800E over the D800 is not worth the artifacts. (although I appreciate the option Nikon is providing)

AA filters are just less of a big deal as the MP count rises. The jump from 21 to 36MP is the benefit for me. I was expecting the D800E to be a slam dunk choice for me, but I have been very surprised by how good the D800 is.
