Adding pixels increases the resolution. The only way to gain resolution is to redesign lenses which result, from Canon's offerings, in significant price increases.

Yes, adding pixels does increase resolution, but if the lenses are not up to the task , you're simply resolving the flaws. So if your corners are soft, then those soft corners will be made ore obvious.

Not sure what you are so against.  What is at the corners of images is rarely of important or the main subject.  Need edge/corner sharpness and they make macro lenses for that.

And yes, the lenses will be significantly more expensive, but then, so will the camera.

The d800 cost $300 less than the d700 when it was launched while Canon's long telephoto lenses went from $6,000 or $8,000 to 10 to $12,000 when they updated them to a II version.  You are flatly wrong.  Camera companies have been adding pixels to cameras for years and prices have been going down and down.
