Re: Almost, but not quite.

GB, a question.....

Noise is always mentioned as an advantage of 4x light on a FF sensor over an identical except for smaller sized M43 sensor. And the amount of extra noise that an M43 sensor would produce for the final image viewed at the same size etc etc. can be calculated mathematically.

But what about the other aspects of the sensor  like DR for instance or colour depth ?

Would a FF frame sensor, given the above scenario, always have 2 more stops of DR and can this be calculated or is the gain from these other components of IQ harder to define scientifically ?
