Could you please show me any test of the cameras with and without the aa-filter with the conclusion that the lack of the aa-filter improves the resolution significantly?
Unfortunately I havenâ€™t found any such test up to now. Mostly the difference can be ignored e.g. NIKON D800 vs. D800E.
I have not made a direct comparison. For a such, one should compare the same camera with and without the filter. I haven't modded any camera yet.
But I have used quite a few cameras with and without AA filter and the difference is clear.
Hopefully Ray could make the comparison with the T2i, that would be very interesting.
For me, the RAWs from an AA-less sensor are easier to work with, they need less sharpening, and hence there is less risk of sharpening artifacts and increasing noise.
Btw, the D800E is not a proper AA-less camera. It still include a low-pass filter, but its effects are cancelled out by a second low-pass filter layer that reverses the effect.
