But that's part of my point. To actually test what's the limiting
factor on resolution, you need to use the same lens on both.

Well, unfortunately it also conflicts with another of your points: 'I
find it interesting that each Nikon camera lately has had a slightly
different "lens personality." This is coming from the different AA
filter choices and changes in microlenses, I think. Many people
forget that there are optical changes happening right at the sensor.'

Yes and no. Nikon's new AA design is actually closer to Canon's than it was previously. It's a valid point to say that you can never eliminate all of the variables (short of doing a lot of disassembly), but I'd say the AA filter is less of a factor overall than the lens.
