The measured resolution on the other hand is not the simple answer it used to be in film days either, because aliasing comes into play. Strictly speaking, you should cut off your resolution measurement at the first sign of any aliasing (as results beyond this are suspect). Where that occurs is a bit subjective and if done conservatively, we would be downgrading all these cameras quite a bit...

Maybe. But - (un?)fortunately there is more detail (even though partly false) above that point.

Its a bit like using creative upscaler (like Genuine Fractals) that invents detail. It looks sharper, but it is not correct.

Its also a bit like over sharpening. It adds crispness to the image, but looking closely it sux.
