Thanks Alan,

some good concise info there

I also note that according to http://www.photozone.de/all-tests many lenses achieve 90% of the sensor's theoretical MTF50 resolution. For some this is by a healthy margin, when in the centre of the field at optimum apertures. I would expect decent current lenses to show substantially better resolution with a 50 MP sensor, and useful further improvements to 100 MP and beyond.

Let's see whether storage cards and processors, both that of the camera and the computer can keep up. So far it seems to have worked out more or less.
