Maybe I missed something, but are we discussing IR filters here to be removed altogether with AA filters?

Since I don't know the formulation of Nikon's AA filter, I would worry about IR contamination on CMOS sensors if the AA is removed. IR filters are needed on most camcorders to achieve true black on certain types of subjects, such as black fibers on clothing.

So, do I understand you correctly: do you think Nikon are going to manufacture and sale a camera without both IR and AA filters?

I would hope they created one that is user replaceable so the user could put in an IR, visible block, visible+AA or visible no AA at their discretion.The sensor would hopefully be protected with a clear glass window. It would certainly make cleaning mishaps less costly and allow for many creative filters to be used!
