That's why I gave a link to follow. Did you read the link?

No. I don't read most links. I've read the Cambridge diffraction page before, anyway.

You said something, or I wouldn't have replied. You made a complete, independent statement:

Two cameras with the same lens and same sensor size
will have the same "real" resolution. The higher MP image
is simply breaking up the same image into more pieces.

That statement is relying on language to alter reality. Digital cameras do not break up an analog images into pieces; they BIN areas of analog focal plane into POINTS of information. The real resolution of a camera is a combination of the lens, and the sensor (including AA filter and microlenses).
