Well... All my good zooms will outresolve 16 Mbit GH2. They stop resolving at some level no matter if I use 50mm prime which (tested) can resolve 110 mm per mm (6 ISO - it is not a typo) with film and microscope or my 14-140mm. And that level is presently 70 lines per mm in old fashioned numbering. Putting the lens on tripod will show some interesting comparisons re microcontrast or so but the detail is - at present 70 lines no more, both with good zooms as well as best primes. Sensor is limitation. However it does not mean that under some specific conditions and scenes prime will not look better. The opposite is true as well, though.
