There is talk that the new Fuji sensor could be around 40 megapixels. I have the 18-55 mm and the 55-200 mm zooms. Does anyone know if they can resolve 40 megapixels, or would I need new lenses with greater resolving power?

they can't "resolve" even 16mp sensor... but more mp will never result in less details even behind the worst lens in the universe !

Do you have a link to test data that shows this?

This was also discussed in another thread. Short answer: you will always see some improvement with more megapixels. How much improvement depends on a lot of factors. See this post:

I don't fully understand everything that you wrote in that thread, but things are clearer now, so thank you.
