You're asking the wrong question. The correct question: What are the chances of getting a shot of comparable sharpness AT THE SAME DPI AND OUTPUT SIZE as lower resolution cameras? My answer: about the same and probably better if there's no AA filter.

What diffraction taketh away, resampling giveth back...

My mention of the tripod was the clue that I wasn't talking about diffraction. But RedFox88's comment is reassuring.

And my point wasn't limited to diffraction. Resampling giveth back on camera shake too. As for Redfox88's comment, the first part about equivalent pixel pitch is valid, but the second part about using "more glass" in FF being good requires clarification (sharpening?!?) when it comes to the question you asked.
