Re: 5D3 vs 6D... sensor pixel density is by far the easiest to predict IQ (new ones; not older ones)

I still disagree.  If there was a visible difference in IQ then you wouldn’t need measurements to prove it.

The measurements show potential capability.  For example, how much shadow detail is available to be recovered at various ISO settings.  But that’s all they show, because the iQ of all of the sensors we’re discussing is too similar to be differentiated in real-world prints.

If the D4, D800 and D600 made visibly better photos than the 1DX and 5D3 then the many available reviews would reach that conclusion, but they don't.

I'm not disputing the fact that you can make a larger print with 36MP or boost shadows beyond two stops.  Just saying that images are otherwise comparable to the point that it makes no difference.
