Aggresive anti-aliasing on E3

Kirk Tuck wrote about the EOS7D yesterday since adding it to his camera fold along with the E3. He writes somewhere that pixel quality is better on the 7D, writes:
Last Summer I was shooting everything with Olympus cameras and lenses. I liked them and they worked fine for most of the stuff I shot. I was thinking (incorrectly) that the bulk of our work was heading for the web and that the 12 megapixels and overly agressive anti-aliasing filters of the current Olympus cameras wouldn't present a problem.
My question is: How does this aggressive anti-aliasing manifest itself, and can you overcome it in postprocessing, and does it affect both RAW and JPEG files or only JPEG files?

These kinds of things worry me.

Re: Aggresive anti-aliasing on E3

it's prior to the jpeg engine - so it affects data collection rather than rendering

you can't pp something that isn't there, but for most applications you wouldn't notice it

there is an anomally in KTs comment in that the E3 is 10mp and the e30 has a less agressive AA filter. The E-P1 is a little agressive but the E-PL1 is very mild and more in line with the older E410/510 approach.

more AA means less A but a equally a slight lowering of detail levels - think of it as a really really low level noise filter.........

I think these comments should only cause concern if you notice any shortcomings in the image quality of your own pictures.
