Now, now, gentleman: don't get your knickers in a twist about the definition of a pro-body
@oldCarlos: I would definitely rule out a different type of sensor with both versions and must state clearly that NO rumor so far has indicated that the version with AA-filter would have any other sensor than the version w/o AA-filter. This is just my own personal guesswork. Why:
1. The D3x with 24MP supposedly already has a weak AA-filter, so with a 36MP sensor the filter needed to avoid moire should already be very weak. So how big would the difference in resolution really be when you leave this very weak AA-filter out? Not very much I assume.
2. Many people complained about the consequences and side-effects of have the "insane" resolution of 36MP in a camera (for your reference: pixel pitch of a 36MP FX sensor is equal to the pixel pitch of a D7000 and below the pixel pitch of a NEX 7 or any other 24MP APS-C body).hint, hint, Nikon: some people want a version with less but better pixels..
3. As evident from the above reactions a price of almost 4k$ for a D700 successor is considered outrageous. Hint, hint, Nikon: bring out something cheaper: In comes a lower pixel-count sensor (perhaps the new D4 sensor, or the old D3x sensor) which then in turn needs an AA-filter.
So in my mind everything fits perfectly together. But again: I have no idea
what Nikon will really be releasing...
