Of course image quality is a function of amongst other things lens and sensor so more pixels should give some advantages. However I read that the best lenses are already at the 99.9% limit with the d800e 36mp fx, with the edges of course lagging, beyond this the diminishing returns will become more apparent. Is there enough room for improvement in lens capabilities (nikon f mount)? Or is their more to be gained by sensor improvements at the same pixel density?

On the other hand when the d2 series came out with 10mp density (dx) with say half the pixel density of the d800 the best lenses of the time were said to be at their limit, but later showed better results as pixel density increased albeit not two fold increase!
