I cant imagine that the 5 um pixels on SD1 are too small. A 10 MP APS-C sensor will have 6 um pixels, i.e. 20% more area.

Roland,

I guess You were a tad too fast...

...because a 5 µm pixel has a area of 5x5 = 25 µm² and
a 6 µm pixel has a area of 6x6 = 36 µm²,
which is 44% more area and therefore significant.

Don't forget that 5 µm is not even pixel size, but pixel pitch only. After space for wiring, it is probably more like 4 µm vs 5 µm. So the difference should be even bigger. > 50% I would guess.
