Max sensor/film resolution in MP for different camera formats

Max sensor/film resolution in MP for different formats.
The results are really interesting..
As you can see from the calculations the max theoretical resolution of a crop sensor (15.8x23.6mm) digital camera is around 72MP (taking in consideration the lie factor in digital cameras, which is around 2x.).
Max film resolution in 35mm is 84MP. In digital full frame cameras you need around 168MP in order to get all the information you see in film....
Max film resolution in a large format camera 5x4 inch is around 1265MP!!!!

I've tried to calculate the different focal lengths as well.
I also calculated some hyperfocal distances.




UPDATE:
I recreated the date tables in Excel.
You can now find more information below:
