So for example, the fences looked terrible and heavily aliased, whereas they look near perfect in DEHR with high FXAA enabled.

I didn't feel that the overall visual package was "bad" mind you, but it didn't compare at all with The Witcher 2 or the cleaner scenes in RAGE (distance). It seemed to me no different than what Valve did in updating the Source engine from HL2 to EP1.
While I do agree that the "distance" shots in Rage (and some mid-range textures as well) looked phenomenal, I think with Witcher 2 there's a lack of genuine, physical realism that BF3 beautifully portrays. This goes for trees, terrain, and the human characters. Nevermind the fact that Wither 2 on everything maxed makes my PC cry every now and then during the more taxing parts of the game, the graphics don't come off as "believable" as a physical world. Playing Caspian Border, it just LOOKED like a place I easily could have gone to, and trying to cap. the objective in the woods with the way the light shines through the leaves reminded me of woodland patrol missions during my training at my old unit.
