No Anti-Aliasing filter

I am no expert on the topic of the effects of not having an Anti-Aliasing filter other than it may cause odd patterns to appear particularly in fabric. With an Anti-Aliasing filter I understand it reduces sharpness. Increased sharpness is something I like and the lack of an anti-aliasing filter is something that attracts me to the OMD EM1.

One of the shots I took on Thursday was of this lady.

EM1 50-200mmSWD lens 1/800s f3.5 ISO400.



This is a 100% crop



Now I think that impressive What do you think.

John

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

Excellent! Have you applied any PP sharpening or is that the jpeg from the camera?

Nothing touched other than cropping. Straight from the camera with whatever setting it had at the time. Exif shows every thing set to default I think.

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

As a matter of interest, how did you find the jpegs? That is very sharp.

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

Everything I took and posted were jpegs. They looked fine to me but it was a bit difficult to tell as the cameras were having lots of settings changed during the session as people experimented.
I agree that ladies coat detail is pretty impressive.

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

All I shot were jpegs but I don't think there is a RAW convertor available that can handle the files. Maybe someone can confirm this.

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

Just been a update to Viewer 3 which said new cameras supported.So it could well deal with E-M1 orfs.

I didn't take anything on me own card last Thursday.

I got mixed results which was all down to the AF settings and my lack of understanding how to get the best out of them. When it hit the spot it was very sharp indeed.

I did turn raw + jpgs for some latter shots. Raw was not recognised in LR 4.4 but after I updated Olympus Viewer it recognised the raw files ok. This one was not shot RAW but only in LF jpeg so I think it impressive.

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

That is an extremely detailed image and I am delighted to see that it was taken with the 50-200. Very encouraging.

Lovely image of a lovely lady.
Not sure about the Smurf on her left, though...

Re: No Anti-Aliasing filter

I'm less interested in the detail as the way that big old 50-200 has achieved precise focus on the E-M1 where all previous m4/3rds bodies would (probably) have failed as the target is moving, needing a quick lock.
Simply got it compared to missing it.

The sharpness and detail seem the SAME as E-M5, e-pL5, e-pM2 etc from every picture I've seen comparing results ... so far.
I would expect a similar result from any of the new-sensored bodies and the 75mm.

All this is good, by the way. A very positive state of affairs.
