Re: Light reaching each pixel

More pixels is always better.

Nothing says you have to average the extra pixels - use advanced noise reduction that benefits from the extra pixels then reduce resolution - you get to pick the trade-off of detail and noise where fewer pixels force the loss of resolution, and doesn't reduce noise, just changes the scale.
