And quite honestly, we were talking about FF and crop comparisons. Looking at those images, I'd say the phone has actually done remarkably well TBH!

At what crop factor your statement becomes incorrect and why?

Wouldn't have a clue. Can you tell me?

Yes. It is always incorrect. But when the difference is small, you can cheat: sharpen more, choose parts of the scene which are slightly OOF, etc., to "prove" your point.

It just adds weight to why you should compare by projecting the same detail to the sensor - as that comparison shows exactly what happens when you don't.

The whole point is that you can't. The Nokia is a Zeiss designed lens. You think that a better lens on the Nokia would match the Pentax and put all the MF manufacturers out of business?

You are basically saying that if an Yugo can run as fast as a Porsche, it ... can run as fast as a Porsche.

This is getting off-topic.
