That is a completely unfair comparison per pixel. 1/500ss vs 1/2000, and ISO 200 vs ISO 400. Doing the math for a 6x crop factor, raising the ISO of the FF by 6 stops, if you shoot the superzoom at ISO 200, shoot the FF at 12,800. Also set your aperture 6 stops slower. I know this is not realistic but if you want to offer the same amount of light per area of the sensor, and do so at the same SS, this should be accurate. Either way comparing those differing SS does nothing to prove a pixel vs pixel argument.
