    The D800e does not have the anti aliasing filter which results in sharper photos.

    So in that regards the 800E is more like 810 or 850? If I am interested in product photography, should I try to find a D800 as opposed to going with D800E Thank you!

    The D800e would be more like the D810, both having 36mp sensors. The D850 has a 45.7mp sensor as well as a lot of upgrades.

    Yes, I understand that. I was referring to the absence of the AA filter in all three models, 800E, 810 and 850. I feel like I'd be better off with a D800 for the product photography? Am I correct? Thanks!

    I would think that sharpness would suffer with the AA filter. The link below compares several models for IQ.

    Although the lack of an anti-alias filter contributes to a minor extent when it comes to sharpness, it can create a problem with something called moire. The link below explains it in pretty plain language
