Err, no, I think I must disagree. 50lp/mm over a 10mm sensor is 500lp of detail which most sensors would easily resolve. 80lp/mm over a 3mm sensor is only 240lp (in the picture height) so lower resolution even if you have a sensor that could resolve 1000lp/mm. It's lp/mm and the mm over which it manages it that gives sharpness, regardless of the sensor (as long as it's in the ball park, no 2x2 pixel systems need apply).
