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

It depends, don't forget you'll be looking at a much enlarged image, so all effects/defects will be more evident. Technically you are right, more sensor resolution means better resolution figures for a lens, but that's not same as actually lens doing better in terms of a final image, just larger = more details.

Now why would CA improve?
