Megapixels & lens sharpness
Nov 2, 2012

Am I correct in assuming that the more megapixels a camera has the more lens flaws will be visible in 100% view? I am eliminating noise reduction blurring with more pixels from consideration in this situation. I noticed testing a lens that flaws, such as overall softness and decentering blur were significantly more noticeable with an 18 megapixel T2i and 15 megapixel t1i and then a 10 megapixel 40D. Same subjects etc, 100% view in photoshop. Not sure how to relate this print quality and size. If so, then to extract the finest image from a high megapixel camera will require the finest optics. Thoughts?
