if is not is

If the pixel pitch and read noise per pixel are both halved, there will be no change in noise at all. So, if a 32 MP mFT sensor had pixels with 71% the read noise of a 16 MP sensor, then there would be no difference in noise.

Halving the pixel pitch would not halve the read noise. Were that the case, all modern digital cameras would have much finer pixel pitches than they currently do.
