The Pixel cramming has crept up so far
In reply to Jared Huntr, Apr 26, 2013

The Pixel cramming has crept up so far that AA filter removal has far less effect than it did on the AA-less 14Mp Full frame Kodaks and the almost non-existant AAs in the 4Mp 1D Mk1 and in the 6Mp D70 (All of which made the softest of zooms look  like primes sharpness wise) . of course the other side of the coin is that Moire and false detail isn`t much of an issue which it was to a serious degree with the Kodaks and the 1D / D70 (the D70 pulled more detail from a scene than the D80 with mediocre lenses, the 1D Mk1 nailed the 6Mp D60 in all instances for resolution and killed the ultra-soft coke bottle AA`d Nikon D100) ..

No (or almot no) AA usually means that all your lenses are a lot sharper (compare a D70 to any other 6Mp DSLR especially the D100), the degree by how much this happens gets lesser as the pixel pitch gets smaller but so do the hard to remove irritating side effects - Tweed suits + D70 or 1DMk1 = hard work in PP, the D7100 should be far less of an issue
