Re: myth: larger sensor = more light

If you have two sensors, illuminated with the light of same brightness, the larger sensor will receive proportionally more photons.

With the same lens, yes.

But the two cameras in question do not have the same lens.

For the same angle of view, f/3.5 on either camera will gather the same amount of light.
