Lens resolution is so far down the list of things I care about that it doesn't even register.
I'd have to become a much better photographer first to do my crappy lenses justice... ...
same here. Hopefully I can reach that point at some point in my lifetime. The only exceptions, are, naturally, unless your a Kubrick-type and need to go to NASA to get your Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f/0.7 to film in candlelight. But, then again resolution wasn't the main concern for that picture-speed was. In my opinion, photography is all about orchestrating many variables (including lens type, processing, and so on) to be able to communicate effectively (and emotionally) with your intended audience.
