Based on the D800 vs the D800e reports I have read, no AA filter will give only a small increase in sharpness when everything else is equal. Playing with the sharpening parameters will give essentially the same results for either camera. My feeling is that other sensor factors such as dynamic range are more important that AA filter or not. I'm not sure of the recording options of the D3300 vs the D5200, but having 14 bit lossless RAW image recording is an important factor for me.
Having said that, I still would choose the D800e or now the D810 over the D800 for the last ounce of potential sharpness. I think the concern about moire' is overblown.
BTW: Fantastic insect picture!
