.....hence my questioning of why this would be the case......like you I see that 720P 60fps should be no worse than the 1080P 30fps that the camera already handles the data stream for.....

The limitation is probably not the total number of bits but the number of lines per second they can pull off the chip. 1080p at 30 fps is 32,400 lines per second. 720p at 60 fps is 43,200 lines per second.

I agree that the 720p mode in the Mark IV makes the aliasing even worse.
