Please explain why you'd want to do that. The only reason I can think of is that for some reason you'd like to print as big as possible and you're allergic to upsampling. Then you are limited by the camera resolution, so we're back in a more MP=higher pixel density=better scenario.

That's not what you were arguing, right? Neither am I. The reasonable thing is to compare images at the same output size.
