I would tend to agree. The question is how do we work the fact that one image is pixelated and the other one is not in our equivalence discussion? Perhaps we cannot. Perhaps our IQ parameters allow us to only compare 'equivalent' images captured at the same resolution or at some downsampled common denominator - but not after upsampling.

In the end the argument depends on the idea that noise is bandwidth dependent, and the bandwidth limit is determined by the viewer.

Right.  And/but we are not used to taking viewer bandwidth limits into consideration in our 'equivalent' comparisons.  Should we?  Can we?
