Hehe.

It's not really an "insistence", but more a practical concern.

You see, when people start arguing about "which sensor can resolve more detail", they invariably resort to 100% pixel view to 'show' the difference.

Gotcha. No, that does not make too much sense, really. I've kind of trained myself to overlook that, though - at least when there is no sensible comparison to something similar.

You might have guessed that sensor resolution as such is of lesser interest to me

So, if one intends to compare at pixel level, then one should ensure that the pixels have been presented with the same detail to record to begin with - otherwise the comparison is completely inane.

Very true. But is that what the OP and the article were about? I would say they were actually trying not to compare at pixel level...

BTW - I'm actually an engineer.

When I shave in the morning, I see one, too.

Not that I shave every morning!
