Re: Does sensor downscaling necessarily improve resolution?

How do you factor in diffraction, the resolving power of your lenses and the overall sensor size (which affects image magnification before viewing)?

Why doesn't this idea taken to an extreme show that an iPhone is even better than a D800 (since it has even smaller pixels)?
