Re: Doesn't that out-resolve many lenses?

What about corners in terms of detail/distortion? A good FF lens on 7D may not be as good on the FF 46MP sensor. CA also affects corners the most.

With very few exceptions (the 17-40 wide open at 17mm), a good FF lens is better on FF even at the corners , in terms of resolution and CA. And, of course, more mp cannot make it worse.

Of course, all that depends if you are actually going to print the images larger, but that's the point of having more pixels. no?

Not necessarily. We get more detail that can be traded for better NR, for example. Also, a weaker AA filter.
