My contention Vlad is that that is okay, it's the actual pixels, not blurred. The scale is more legible without a doubt. If you want finer detail, folks, get an 80MP camera. Just don't blur my pixels!!!

You'd rather have sharp, but wrong pixels than very slightly blurry, but accurate pixels?

Removing the AA filter gets you, at best, 30% more equivalent pixel count, but it means you can't trust your images to show what was actually there, and it means you might get some very, very ugly and false artifacts that are obvious at any scale.
