fewer pixels? 12.8M versus +20M?

Very weak AA filter and large pixel.  If I downsampling my 5D2/5D3 photos to the same size said 2000-pixel wide, they are very close but not really sharper.  5D2/3 noticeably resolves more at 3000-pixel wide.  I found 5Dc is especially shine in cloudy day or under soft light.
