Okay, before I say this, keep in mind I'm a huge advocate of a functional AA filter in front of a sensor.

However, my esteemed colleagues assure me they cannot see any alias artifacts in their E5 shots ... other than the occasional moire. Now, I do see artifacts all over most E5 shots. However, if the alias artifacts are so subtle that only a few people even notice them, are they important for the majority of photographers?

you've made several demonstrations that you declare are comparisons, and the results have appeared very oversharpened, yet you don't seem to notice this

But to answer your question, I think if I had to choose between aliasing and moire that apparently your esteemed colleagues cant see and the displays of oversharpening, I'd take the former...

This, of course, then begs the question: is a well tuned AA filter even necessary for the majority of photographers ... especially as many of them wet themselves over pixel sharpness ... something an alias filter does soften?

doesn't even allow a respectable response
