As part of our image quality testing for the Sony Alpha 57, we've shot our resolution chart with a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM 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 Sony Alpha 57 is capable of resolving up to around 24 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.
