So I don't consider myself a pixel peeper but I recently had a short stint with a Sony A7R which I didn't keep because I just found the EM5 way more usable from a day to day perspective and felt the gains in sharpness at this time isn't worth the extra $. I'm waiting for the Sony FF to mature a bit and I'm likely to switch over, probably later. Anyhow I posted up some pictures with taking snaps with the Sony 35mm F2.8 and my wife was immediately blown away. She said she's never seen my pix look so sharp and this is on a regular 1080p screen. I took a look and just felt maybe it's just the pop the system gives because of the better dynamic range and zeiss look but upon looking at examples of others I clearly notice the a7R samples around flickr and other sites MUCH sharper than the A7 even not blown up!? Knowing the lack of AA being a major selling point I looked at other cameras that don't have an AA filter and notice that similar CRISP pop from the images when focused well using good glass. I figured mathematically (16mp+ resolution down sized to 1080) you shouldn't notice it but man even 1/4 of the screen the sharpness IS noticeable. All of the cameras with AA removed look WAY better. Are you guys out there with good vision seeing the same thing? Here are some example pix of cameras with no AA filter: Olympus E-M1 - http://www.flickr.com/groups/em1/pool/ Ricoh GR - http://www.flickr.com/groups/ricohgr/ Sony a7R - http://www.flickr.com/groups/ricohgr/ Compare to most of the images to AA filtered cameras below: Olympus E-M5 - http://www.flickr.com/groups/e-m5/ Sony a7 - http://www.flickr.com/groups/sonya7/ (some mixed a7r in there, i bet you'll see the a7r when the images POP) Nikon D600 - http://www.flickr.com/groups/d600nikon/ Here's my Sony a7R set in a dark home with mixed poor lighting and shooting the 35mm f2.8: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ageslani/sets/72157639382680723/ Here's a different day when I brought my e-m5: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ageslani/sets/72157638751248986/ After looking at some of the pix even I took with the 2 cameras it seems I see it also. I know this seems like a David and Goliath but I really didn't suspect noticing a lack of AA sharpness on a computer screen NOT 100% scaled. I take 1000s of pictures a year and starting to think paying a bit extra for a camera with no AA filter may be worth it. I believe my next camera will lack this AA filter. Am I crazy are you guys seeing this or knew this already?
