Trying to recalibrate your camera's autofocus would be a pain. This kind of mod is somewhat more advantageous to the article's author as he's a manual-focus live mode video shooter. Also, consider having to add more glass to your optical path to add in an IR (and he doesn't mention UV) filter, losing some of that sharpness you've gained.

for someone who would use it for stills a lot, more than for video, wow, it's tempting, but I just couldn't see doing it, no way

Some people buy a new car and do a major modification, however not many.  If you want to spend your money to do it, fine.  I would save money and get a D800E and have a warranty, as well as support in processing software, etc.

The reason many of us did not go for the D800E (apart from being Canon fans); is the significant loss in arbitrage of switching to the overpriced Nikkors and the 75mb file sizes. As it is I am still reeling form the 25mb raws of the 5diii coming from a 5dc. Otherwise... the 800E itself was always cheaper than the 5diii.
