Re: not sharpness

You seem to be mixing terms and describing sharpness but calling it resolution.  Resolution only describes how much detail a camera/lens is capable of capturing — and not necessarily the quality of the detail that is captured. The problem, in these types of discussions, is that folks keep mixing related terms an using them to describe inaccurately a concept

Your understanding of resolution that purely based on the amount of pixels is very wrong. I know on your logic 41mp Nokia 808 has double "resolution" than 21mp 5D2. The only problem is that when you see such 41mp photos from Nokia 808, you hardly can figure out much detail, or maybe your eyes are different from all others?

DXOMark correctly test the real resolution (P-MPix) that in my words “Fine Detail” that human eyes can resolve that only matters.  Otherwise your paper resolution is just an Utopia that you can feel but you really cannot see

It's not regular sharpness or acutance on your understanding because latter supposedly can be enhanced in software processing. However the fine details only can obtained thru sensor-lens system captured.
