You're not enlarging the FF image as much, so it isn't as "hard" on the lens in question. This allows an FF sensor to provide more resolution than APS-C even if it has less MP (as long as you frame the same/are not FL limited). For example, I've noticed that the 13MP 5D will give slightly better resolution than the 18MP sensor in my 7D if framed the same.

That's why I find it funny that people often say FF requires better lenses: the opposite is true both in a resolution and DOF standpoint. Even the much maligned 28-135IS on a 6D or 5D3 will give better results than a 17-55 on my 7D.
