And why do people get so turned on by this?

Money.

The higher the resoluton, the more reach, the smaller and cheaper the camera for the same reach.

D7100 with 70-200 F4 today can produce the resolution of D3X with 300 F4 a few years ago at a fraction of the price (assumming lighting is non-issue). sensor resolution improves year on year for free, but lens resolution improvement is hard and expensive, that is why people get "turned on" if there is a sharp lens, especially if it is cheap, like sigma 35 F1.4 or Nikon 50 F1.8G or Canon 70-200 F2.8 II.
