Then, when the pixel density is the same, (so number of MP smaller) and the  sensors have the same QE, the smaller sensored camera would have a DR advantage but a resolution disadvantage assuming the same total light

Basically I'm hoping that some point in the future when sensors have reached a ceiling for QE  I can carry a 2/3 inch or 1 inch sensored camera up a mountain and get the same DR as a much larger sensor for photos that predominantly require large DOF.

Current resolution and noise is sufficient for me.

I'll read Gollywop's explanation when I get home tonight.

Thanks for the help
