Re: 21 Mpx downscaled to 12Mpx should have double color information

Won't downsizing loose some the benefit of the 21mp and make pseudo 12mp cells.

it would seem to be much fairer to upsize the Nikon 12mp to 21mp using averaging interpolation and then compare the detail ?

I was thinking like you about MP, but is you downsize a 21 MPx to 12
MPx, taking into account the bayern pattern, you will get double
color pixels, so it should had more detail, even the noise because of
the interpolation should be less.

For comparison of both camera will be nice to see a 5DMKII downsized
to 12 Mpx and compared with pictures of the D700.

I hope I'll see a comparison of the 5DMKII with a 24-70 and the D700
with a 24-70.
