So your comparison is of a 6mp sensor with AA filter vs 16mm sensor without AA filter. there are more demands on glass for high density sensors than lower, especially with regards to CA

No way jose, it can't be that.   The D7000 is a 16MP and was tack sharp even at 1.4.

The D7000 has the AA filter but I'm sure that the XE1 with no AA filter is not the cause for my soft horrible looking photos.
