Now you shifted topic to per-picture level not per-pixel level

...that someone would be concerned with the appearance of the photo, not the appearance of individual pixels from photos captured on sensors with different pixel counts.

On their respective designed sizes not have to reduce sizes.  per-pixel = 100% cropped that I use interchangeably, that's what DPR reviews also used.

What I'm saying, Peter, is that we don't compare 1 pixel on a 5D3 to 1 pixel on a D800, but rather 22 pixels on a 5D3 to 36 pixels on a D800, if we want to compare in a photographically meaningful manner at the pixel level.

What was he thinking?

Now he is talking downsampling to 5D3 size

This, of course, eats away most of the resolution advantage of the D800, so I'm not sure why we would compare in this manner if we are talking about which system resolves more detail.

See you tomorrow.
