It will be about as good as a pin sensor bridge camera...

Sensor size is really only important for the number of pixels in can carry at a large enough sensor site size.

A FF 21 mp camera might have 45 micron site size; change that sensor to a aps-c and it drops down to perhaps 23 microns.
Make it a pin head size, still keeping the 21 mp and the site size will be about 1 micron.

Bigger sites = better low-light ability, lower noise, less texture smearing.. generally better IQ all over (depending on other factors).

Nikon d800 are 4.88µm! d7100 3.9? omd 3.8.
