In particular, do you think that the K-x actually IS a Hot rod Pentax w/o an AA filter? And if so, how then can't it be sharp enough?
I guess we'll find that out soon, someone said here K-X sensor is the Sony A-500 sensor, checked Sony A500 pics, they seemed soft to me also, is ti possible a bare sensor can be that soft I don't know, they've shoulda placed at least an IR filter in front of it.

For more information a Nikon D200 without AA filter (HotRod) on the left, a stock D200 is on the left, if you check the moire in the third column, damn moire is still there, but just blurry, AA gives nothing but only blur in this sample, very scary.

(I guess I start having irrational bad feelings about AA filters which are stealing pixels from me).
