As part of our image quality testing for the Canon EOS 7D, we've shot our resolution chart with the Sigma f/1.4 50mm lens mounted.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 100 the Canon EOS 7D is capable of resolving up to around 24 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.
