    Looks interesting as a concept.

    And not being forced to pay 300 Eurodollars for the priviledge of having
    the AA filter off sounds nice.

    Still wondering why they didn't make a FF body, yet.

    Losing a lot of FF lenses from their lens line-up in recent years?

    Smallest unit you can manipulate in post is the pixel, no?

    Even better, a sensor with higher resolution so as to be closer to the
    lens limit, and no AA filter required. We are already seeing sensors
    move this way, and that may well continue in the future, even if all the
    pixels are not saved (i.e. there is processing in the camera).

    Whether something in silicon may be cheaper than an AA filter is a good

    I like the Pentax approach - the MTF may be better and it may have fewer
    artefacts - my maths used to be good enough to work these things out.
    What effect the AA-shake has on the like of the mechanism is unknown. I
    wonder whether this was discovered by accident - some residual noise in
    the movement was discovered to mimic AA filtering.

    It is easier to re-introduce existing FF lenses than to design new ones,
    at any rate
    (provided that their old designs can work well with the current high
    resolution FF sensors)
