QE: 1 photon -> ~0.6 electron

The quantum efficiency calculations in this earlier post my be of interest


summary in practice, a photon near mid green coming in at the front of the AA/Bayer/sensor stack will be converted to an electron with a probability of up to about 0.6 depending on the camera. (a fraction of the photons is absorbed in the Bayer colors)
