Apparently the two sensors are not equally efficient, they are not from the same year, from different makers, etc, etc ....

Are they 2.5 or 4 stops apart in DR?

Or something else?

Get the clue boggis, because you are clueless does not mean the others are.

The clue, Sergey, is in practicality .

Joe's theory "falls between two stools": on the one hand, it is a needlessly complex restatement of the trivial; on the other hand, it is dependent upon a fictional "all other things being equal".

The end result is something that is useless for application to photography.

Well, perhaps you have a tale about how applying "equivalence theory" in some situation proved useful?
