There are different matters to consider: 1. You are right when a 36MP outcome-file describes more pixels, if that is the more resolution you mean - OK, that is always the case. 2. The viewable detail is a complete different thing: imagine, a moved ray moves a certain distance A during the shot on the sensor, if the pixel-diameter (or the array-diameter) is smaller than A the ray will cover more than one pixel during the shot, if another sensor has pixels larger than A, there is a greater chance of staying on one pixel (array).

i) There is an AA filter there precisely to make sure that a 'ray' always covers at least one pixel.

ii) what happens to the rays that hit the border between two pixels - won't they always record in two pixels, whatever the pixel size?
