N1 has 10mp.

The V2 has 14mp.  An A7R cropped to the same dimension is less than 5MP.

But there is another consideration often missed: magnification. For something to fit lifesize, your options of such subjects is also more limited with smaller sensors.

Most common macro lenses shoot up to life size but also work at 1:2 or 1:3 just fine.   The other way around is much less common (macro lenses that work at 2:1).  The limit is only in your head when you think about it wrongly.

Shoot small followed by cropping is better than shooting at a larger magnification?
