Nikon follows Fujifilm steps and abandoning optical low-pass filter in its new 24.1MP DX-format DSLR D7100. Nikon's PR says: "The innovative sensor design delivers the ultimate in image quality by defying convention; because of the high resolution and advanced technologies, the optical low pass filter (OLPF) is no longer used. Using NIKKOR lenses, the resulting images explode with more clarity and detail to take full advantage of the 24.1-megapixel resolution achieved with D7100’s DX-format CMOS sensor." No further details of these "advanced technologies" are given so far.
