Re: a little more on cross-system comparisons

And the R5 has an AA filter for a reason; it reduces or prevents aliasing (the recording of false data) in some cases. On the other hand, it softens the image somewhat. It's a tradeoff you can argue about both ways, but it eliminates the possibility of learning much about the difference between the Nikon lens and the Canon lens from an Imatest test.

I think they might have done it (incorporated the AA filter) because the R5 is also a video monster, and unless I'm mistaken, many videographers will aim for a shutter speed of about half the frame rate because super sharp frames appear unnatural in a moving image anyway.
