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

More pixels will never resolve more than the lens can: if you think otherwise I'd love to be educated as to how.

I agree that the closer the MP gets to the ultimate resolving power of the lens you do get diminishing returns, but that's the same for everything. Sensible people stop spending when they can't tell the difference any more.
