What's going on with this?

The sensor can ONLY capture the image presented by the lens. If the lens fails to produce dots as small as the pixels on the sensor, the the sensor simply captures the slight blur produced by the lens. That is, this is not a limitation of the sensor (especially when the lens is wide open) but a limitation of the optics in the lens and their ability to put up an image on the sensor with detail at the limit of the pixels on the sensor.
