Re: Canon 'removes' low pass filter
Sounds likely but given Nikon have botched it too why bother going to the expense of doing it properly (like Leica?). Presumably the Canon software botch will work with other cameras but the Nikon hardware botch is expensive and will only ever work with the cameras the factory install it on.
