I suppose the benefit of more pixels, must have an end point, presumably that point is limited by the lens, if so, we cant be far away from the end game.

Not really an end point per se, but rather a process of diminishing returns. Doubling the resolution of the sensor will always result in a better image, but doubling each successive time will result in a smaller and smaller improvement in the final image (given the same lens). Eventually it makes more sense economically to live with the current resolution, or upgrade the lens.
All images (c) unless otherwise specified, please ask me before editing.
