Everyone gets an opinion.

Sure. Just questioning the factual basis of yours. Take this RAW from IR for example:

Do you find the noise troublesome if you let LR develop it at default settings?

Note that current MFT sensors are better in terms of DR (about one EV better in the case of the E-M1) than current Canon FF sensors with close to 24 MP. Nevertheless, I haven't seen a whole lot of suggestions that Canon should drop the pixel count down to 12 or so MP.

Believe it or not, this is not news to me.

I didn't suggest it was. I merely called attention to a fact.

Perhaps the salient point here is that I never even intimated that current Canon sensors are any good.

That point is not salient at all as I hoped I had already made clear.

Lowering their resolution would not fix what ails them, making the entire point irrelevant to the discussion at hand.

What is your factual basis for claiming that lowering the resolution of Canon FF sensors would not fix what ails them?

And since you think lowering the resolution would not help in Canon's case, why do you think increasing the resolution would be detrimental in the case of MFT?
