I have to say that is somehow funny how experience differs...mine says otherwise...at large sizes prints i have a problem to mantain the details captured by sigma...and not with 14mp> cameras...(im not saying that im right and you are wrong...just how different results we are getting...talking just about prints...my main objective)

In general though, I think the lens differences (Pentax 17-70 compared to Sigma 28-70mm) may give you different SHARPNESS and corners, but not really more or less actual detail.

I think,

that one could imagine, that a good guessing based on real (sensor) sensels, should be at least a tad better, than a free fictional set of additional pixel for printing...

...thus a high pixel count matters especially for making good prints - not really on screen, which is also shown by DXOmark.
(They discriminate between print and screen by their measurement graphs.)

@Sandy:

How much detail do You get from a out of focus shot in comparison to a in focus shot...

...I think You get more (wanted) details with the shot in focus...
(Example: the letters in a book, or the structure of the paper etc...)

...could You think, that it is a similar behaviour when comparing a sharper lens to another lens (not only in regard of the corners)?
