The 16MP sensor has less noise at pixel level, but don't know if you will get better image quality untill ISO1600. Above ISO1600 I'm sure it will perform better but those high ISO you better don't use anyway.

Depends highly on HOW you compare and WHAT you compare.

Pixel by pixel?

or

Senor area?

Pixel by pixel the lower density sensor will look a bit cleaner, but when comparing sensor area there is no practical difference at all. Also a denser sensor gives higher resolution, which is very welcome when shooting at lower ISO. Or do you just shoot at ISO 6400 and higher, and then compare pixel by pixel???
