Sorry to be dense, but assuming all lenses are equivalent (FF = 1.3x sharper than MF), and noise and DR aside, will the two systems capture equal detail?


Conversely, if the lenses from both systems are equal in sharpness (not equivalent), will the larger sensor produce more detail?


But ... lenses for larger sensors are not equivalent in sharpness for whatever reason, at equivalent settings. The typical performance is somewhere between the two cases above; and larger systems resolve more (try posting this in the m43 forum).
