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.

Well, yeah, it does. If more detail is resolved and the sensor is at least as efficient, tnen it is the "same as actually lens doing better in terms of a final image". For example, the pics linked above:
