Re: relative resolution lens vs. sensor

Just coincidentally, I came across this which implies that we haven't reached diminishing returns in sensor resolution yet. Your assumption that the lens and sensor are approximately equal gets a good boost from this data, if anything the best lenses might still be out-resolving the sensor by some margin. If so then my question is answered.

this would interest you, using a 50mm lens on a would be 500mp FF sensor

The Camera is only a tool, photography is deciding how to use it.
The hardest part about capturing wildlife is not the photographing portion; it’s getting them to sign a model release
