    So what's more important for the best resolution the lens or the body? Wide
    open question, I know.

    Actually Rich, the answer quite simply is both. With crappy glass you get
    any number of image quality problems from soft pictures, poor focus,
    aberrations, etc. However, even with a $20,000 lens if you camera is crap
    (poor sensor quality, high noise levels, etc.) you will never see the
    advantage to that expensive lens. This also applies to lenses that cost $400
    or $500.

    Myself with my Pentax K10D I have learned the hard way that for me at least
    I need to stick with Pentax lenses. The Sigma's and Tamrons I have tried
    have been mediocre at best even when exchanging a bad one for another they
    just aren't good. Luckily Pentax has a nice range of lenses at good prices
    that have so far given me everything I want and the quality of their lenses
    are very good.

    As for the camera, we are all very lucky in this regard. All dLSR's of all
    prices are pretty damn good image quality wise. There maybe some variations
    to the in camera processing but even the cheapest dSLR made today gives you
    better image quality than film ever did. So one now only needs to worry
    about the lenses. One thing about it if you invest in good glass plan to
    stay with that brand camera. Having to buy new lenses each time you change
    camera brands can get expensive.
