Marco Solorio has posted a very interesting ‘first look’ at the $385 VAF-5D2 Optical Anti-Aliasing Filter for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II produced by Mosaic Engineering – you’ll want to see Marco’s report!

First Look: VAF-5D2 Optical Anti-Aliasing Filter

It’s not very often a product comes to market that seems like it’s nothing short of magic. At first glance, the VAF-5D2 Optical Anti-Aliasing Filter by Mosaic Engineering is such a product. I was skeptical at first with this $385 product, but after reading some positive feedback from Philip Bloom at its initial prototype stage, I knew this product was for real.

It took longer than expected to arrive here at out facility (ordered back in August, and arrived here mid-November), but the wait was worth it. After some initial A/B testing with and without the filter, I’m thrilled with the results. The science behind this device is amazing, and it works, and it works extremely well.
