This whole argument falls apart when you start proclaiming the 35 F/1.4 is Fuji’s best lens. Yes people like that lens for its character, but when it comes to optical sharpness and clarity it is not the best Fuji lens on the market.

The 50 F/2, the 90 F/2, several of the newer variants, crud, even the 23 F/1.4 is a sharper lens than the 35mm.

also, on every resolution chart, the Fuji’s compete agains the 24 MP Full frame sensors and do very well.

So if the FF lens has that many more line pairs, but not any more pixels (24 vs 26, or AKA both 24 on my X-H1) then wouldn't it just be more lines at sub-pixel levels that the larger pixels wouldn't resolve anyway?

In other words, is the theoretical higher resolution of the larger lens, which would be utilized by a higher resolution larger sensor, really a benefit beyond a certain point with a 24mp sensor anyway? Once the lines per mm get higher than the number of pixels per mm, does it really matter much for either sensor size?

I'm not trying to bash either argument, just to understand.
