If I were using them for the same purpose, I would agree, but I would be using the 24mp to crop more.

In what way would this make the 24 MP sensor worse than the 16 MP sensor?

If both cameras perform equally when used for the same purpose (equal cropping), but the 24MP camera in addition can be used for another purpose (tighter cropping) which the 16MP camera cannot be used for, how can this be used to justify claims that the 24 MP camera has worse performance than the 16MP camera?

I find it incredible that so many people can think this way. Let us try a car analogy:

Car A has a top speed of 120 km/h.

Car B has a top speed of 200 km/h.

When driving both cars at 120 km/h, they are equally loud.

When driving Car B at 200 km/h, it is louder.

Would you avoid Car B because of noise?
