  • at 16MP the pixels are smaller than at 12MP, the problem is that when peeping at 100% the image may appear slightly softer due to the nature of the smaller pixels, there is more smoother detail.

That may be true, but as the OP is comparing cameras with 16.2MP and 14.2MP sensors, I don't think the size difference would be enough to cause what the OP is experiencing.

A photograph is more than a bunch of pixels
