It's just a 22% improvement in resolution. I don't think it will change the world.
Erik, I find it odd that in two pages of this thread I find the most useful answer so far in your reply despite it being the shortest!
I'd add from hands-on experience with digital backs I'd say 15-20%. If you're lenses aren't very sharp, your focus is off slightly, or the aperture selected has moderate or high diffraction, then the difference is much less. There also seems to be a slight change in the "feel" of the sharpness that I don't pretend to be able to qualify mathematically, nor would I claim is night and day.
I don't know how closely that experience will correlate to this Nikon given that the D800E is not an AA-free filter in the sense of just removing the AA filter.
It seems to me that resolution and IQ seem are often used as interchangeable terms. I suppose it's somewhat subjective but I'd argue very strongly that resolution is one facet of IQ and that pure resolution is often 3rd or 4th on our client's lists of facets of image quality.
