I don't think you have any concept of what fine photographic detail is.

I think it is you who lacks the concept, as crisp partial and distorted "snap-to-grid" imaging seems to be ideal to you.

The one on the left has either a lousy AA filter or no AA filter.

A strong enough blur filter to hide that mess doesn't exist.

Actually, even a mild AA filter greatly suppresses that.

The bottom line is that both Foveon and Bayer sensors have way too little pixel density to cover the full range of imaging needs.
