Re: Three Quick Questions vs The Enjoyment of Photography

Ironically, Equivalence works against larger formats, as the noise advantage for larger sensor systems disappears for Equivalent photos.

GB, enlighten me here, same scene, same metering, FF show less noise (maybe not if the sensor is 7 years old) in real pictures, why is this then? Assuming same number of pixels per sensor, the larger pixels will get more light per pixel at same exposure settings, making it easier for the sensor to generate a final picture with less noise, I would say latest sensors compared FF still has about a 2 f-stop advantage in noise alone, and some in DR.
