why did Oly drivers ask for more sharpness?
Jan 5, 2011

In a torture moire test that I participated in with a number of other cameras, the E3 was the ONLY camera that didn't exhibit moire while shooting different fabrics.

Also, when the E3 puts something into focus I get good files at low ISO's. I'd be interested in a side by side test. I'm certain the E5 will be sharper, but I wonder by how much with proper PP.

This is 100% with little sharpening. 14-54 + ec 1.4. Will the E5 really do that much better?

So, here's a theory. The Oly focus system has a tendency to miss focus just by a hair which makes files ever so slightly soft. I must wonder if people were looking at these files and asked Oly for sharper files. Oly thought 'well, sharper files. That's easy! Weaker AA.

Someone asked 'What about moire?'

'Don't worry,' Oly said, 'Our extraordinary research division will do something that no other manufacturer has been able to do: eliminate moire with software!'

Just a theory, of course.
