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

Make that more pixels will always resolve more than the lens can , and it will be correct.

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.

Resolution of a lens is not measured in pixels. The notion of a "sensor outresolving a lens" is nonsense.
