This example used the Nikon D7100, a 24-megapixel DX-crop sensor which does not have an anti-aliasing filter. Pixel density if scaled to full frame would be 56.0 megapixels, a realistic prospect by late 2013 (this example written in March 2013).
There are three things that make this example particularly instructive:
- A sensor with photosite/pixel density equivalent to a whopping 56-megapixel full-frame DSLR (Nikon D7100).
- A sensor without an anti-aliasing filter (optical low pass filter), thus allowing maximal lens performance to be acquired.
- A world-class lens, the Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar.
