Well, I think my lenses outresolve the D800.

Unless you have a lens that was run over by a truck or has the front element smeared in pig s***, your lenses are capable of a lot more than lowly 36mp.

Wrong.

If you have 2 or more lenses capable of resolving more than 36mpx, then they will all record the same resolution from the D800 sensor seeing as the sensor is the limiting factor.

"The D800′s ultra-high resolution sensor can provide amazing detail. Not every lens (in fact, not most lenses) are going to be able to give you the maximum resolution the camera is capable of.  This list isn’t about great lenses, it’s about what lenses can wring the most resolution out of a D800 when you need every ounce of resolution"
