So my question is, for folks who have used an array of different formats extensively, how much does this affect real world shooting?

Not at all. As you pointed out, for constant (deep) depth of field, all formats are the same.

This is not quite accurate. At narrow apertures the pixel-level resolution obtainable is also dependent on the effects of noise. Clearly that favors the sensor with the larger pixel size ( i.e. area per pixel ) other things being equal.

No, it doesn't. As was pointed out in the OP, for the same shutter speed and depth-of-field, you're going to have the same (shot) noise from all systems.

Assuming same QE. Small BSI sensors, for example, can have an advantage in practice.
