Sure they do. Look at resolution tests of lenses across several bodies with differing resolution. The highest resolution body always has the highest test figures.

See, Bob, the optical quality of the lens doesn't improve based on the body, so the idea that a dslr with near-medium-format resolution will give all your lenses a "one-shot upgrade" is very silly indeed.

What it will do instead is expose the many compromises made in producing cheap glass.

Unless you don't view/print in formats that will take advantage of all that resolution.

In which case, why did you buy the camera to begin with?
