Well, here is a preliminary example of what I have been promising for
a little while; a direct comparison of pixel density with the same
subject, same distance, same f-stop, same exposure time, same focal
length. The cameras are the Canon 400D with 5.7 micron pixels, and
the Panasonic FZ50 with 1.97 micron pixels. The larger crops are at
the scale of 100% pixel view of the FZ50, and the smaller ones, at
the scale of 100% pixel view of the 400D.

I just noticed all the threads going on recently about this pixel size business (I'm newish here, spent more time on usenet until a few months ago). Remembering the "fun" that was had by all the few times this was discussed on usenet, I am looking forward to the responses here

[nicely done by the way, but I'm willing to bet it won't convince those who don't want to be convinced-my guess is it'll take some time until a few "authorities" are convinced, and then slowly more people will wake up]
