Re: 15mp = empty magnification

"The reality, though, is that 15mp on a crop camera is beyond the resolving power of most commercial lenses, so these 15mp are nothing more than empty magnification (aka digital zoom)."

If wear our tinfoil hats, the above ridiculous statement cannot get to our brain!

So, it is a good thing I cancelled the 5DII preorder. If the lenses
cannot resolve for 15 megapixels, what the heck are they going to do
with 21 megapixels. I am confused. I have seen some wonderful
samples out of the 1DsIII. How do account for that?
