both fuji and X lenses are excellent, I have no clue what their limits are, I have no intention to go to 100mpix now, that might change in the future but I don't really see what 600-800 mix would do for anyone?

Reduced aliasing.

Just to say, I see quite extensive aliasing on my P45+ and now that I have some sharp primes I essentially see aliasing on the A7rII, too.

The A7rII has smaller pixels than GFX 50/X1DII and it probably has gapless microlenses.

I don't think that the 61 MP of the Sony A7rIV is enough to eliminate aliasing, so I don't see an immediate solution to that problem.

This one from the P45+ is quite impressive...

But, photographers have used P45+ since 2007 and been quite happy. Yes, the moiré brush is quite effective but it also smears out color.

Best regards


the P40+ was my last DMF back, I shot the 45+ quite a bit as well. afaik they are the same sensor tech, the 45+ is larger....I did like the color but moire was horrible and really hard to get rid of, maybe today's brushes would take care of it faster and better, maybe that is because they are CCD and not CMOS? I don't see either of these backs anywhere near the same class as the gfx or X1D.

I used to have the A7RII, liked the A7RIII much better and still have  RX1RII which afaik has the same sensor as the A7RII....I don't remember ever seen any moire or aliasing with either of these cameras...

I am not disputing people's findings in regard to moire and aliasing with the X1DII and GFX 50mpix sensors.

Compared to FF mirrorless both these systems have multiple drawbacks but IQ and aliasing and moire are just not even on my horizon when it comes to comparing systems. the 100mpix sensor might solve a problem in this regard for some people but it is not a problem I have even come across in years shooting both systems.

I still don't understand what the A7RII and P45+ have to do with this thread?
