    Low Pass AA filter

    Which of the following Olympus cameras is WITHOUT Low Pass AA filter

    OM-D E M1

    OM-D E M10

    OM D E 10 2

    OM D E 5

    OM D E 5 2

    E P 5

    E PL 5

    E PL 7

    Is there a big difference in image quality with or without Low Pass filter?

    Sample images to compare?

    Olympus stated that the E-M5 had a very much reduced AA filter but independent tests seem to suggest that compared to the E-M1, which Olympus confirms has no AA filter, there is no detectable presence of an AA filter. For most intents and purpose you can consider all models from and including the E-M5 onwards as being sans AA filter. so that means all the models in your list.

    I think only the E-M1 has no AA filter. Im pretty sure the rest have one, even if they are mild. I definitely can get moire with the E-M1 in certain situations. Its wonderful sharp and needs very little sharpening on input.
