It is very possible that the loss of acutance by the OLP filter can be compensated by a bit more sharpening. The Maxmax images do display a lot of color moiré, for instance.
Personally, I think that smaller pixels with optimal OLP filtering is the best route.http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/index.php/photoarticles/76-my-medium-format-digital-journey?start=9http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/index.php/photoarticles/75-aliasing-and-fake-detail

By pure chance I have come across the website of a company, LDP LLChttp://www.maxmax.com/
It is a company that specializes in various optical products covering the IR and UV spectrum, and in related camera conversions. My interest was particularly piqued by a conversion which they term "Hot Rod Visible". This involves removing the stock AA-ICF filter and replacing the ICF filter with one of their own.
When one looks at the posted photos comparing a stock camera with a modified version (Nikon D200, D700 and others) the difference in detail/resolution is both obvious and striking. Of course I realize that these comparisons have been posted by a company whose interest is clearly in selling their product. That said, I have no reason to doubt their integrity but I would surely like to have some independent evaluation or comments relating to this conversion.
A search turns up an article in LuLa which deals with an IR conversion performed by this company.http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/infrared%20dslr.shtml
Other than this I can find no commentary or evaluation of the company itself or of the Hot Rod conversion in particular. I will be most grateful for any remarks or links to such information
