Pixel size matters (LensRentals article)

I tend to trust words from known entities with their reputation on the line, more so than those from the anonymous individuals here, who may be living in their mom's basement and face no consequence.


■Noise and high ISO performance: Smaller pixels are worse. Sensor size doesn’t matter.

■Dynamic Range: Very small pixels (point and shoot size) suffer at higher ISO, sensor size doesn’t matter.

■Depth of field: Is larger for smaller size sensors for an image framed the same way as on a larger sensor. Pixel size doesn’t matter.

■Diffraction effects: Occur at wider apertures for both smaller sensors and for smaller pixels.
