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.

... I know that. But this is an 85mm Otus, and DXOMARK lists it as capturing almost twice as much data.

Are you suggesting that lens rental shot the image very stopped, perhaps at f/11 or such?

No, not al all.

twice as much data as what?

If you could find an MTF graph of the Otus maybe I could point out where the discrepancy lies.

... Twice as much data as the 6D or 5D Mk III sensors are even capable of capturing. They can capture about 20MP, but supposedly the Otus paired with a 5Ds R can capture 40MP or more.
