Nonsense. Any subject with any detail is affected.

and it's not something the human eye is good at seeing.

If you can see the recorded picture then you can see it. It's obviously visible in the Sigma images.

Either way, it's not measured in MP.

Obviously, that's my point.

It's fair to say that when the average consumer hears that a camera has more resolution they are also thinking about more detail.

For the types of shots they actually take.

LOL. What the heck do you think people are planning to do with their cameras?

To make it easier for you to follow and not deviate, lets at least keep the sensors similar in size.

Why? If MP truly measures resolution, it should be independent of size.

I never said it did. On the contrary.

Since it is well known, even by the detractors and haters, that Sigma cameras are ISO 100-400 cameras it makes no sense for you to be talking about high ISO.

Why is resolution only important at base ISO in daylight?

Sigh. Do you even know anything about the cameras being discussed?

Can a mosaic camera resolve 15MP of detail with the right target and algorithm? It seems that 15MP is a max theoretical resolution not a guarantee.

I have no idea what you are talking about and how that relates to anything I have said.

That if MP is a measure of resolution, it's only a measure of a max potential resolution, not what you get for all targets and all conditions. If there exists a target where a mosaic sensor can hit that value, then the number is valid. We've already established there are real world shooting cases where an X3 sensor will not always get 15MP or even simply more than a mosaic 15MP.

I never said "MP is a measure of resolution." Read more carefully what I write.

And why don't they?

Because most of them want all-round cameras that perform well for shot-to-shot time, battery life, zoom, and both indoor and outdoor shooting. Or they want shooting/sharing convenience like a cell-phone camera.

And for those that care more about the best image quality at low ISO then the Sigma cameras are for them. See how easy that is?
