There's an old saying from the film days: "There's no substitute for square inches of film." That's why sheet film -- 4x5 inches and larger -- provides the ultimate in film-based image quality. Would the same not hold true for sensors? The bigger the sensor, the better the image.

For the general population it's what good enough that prevails. I had that drilled into my head last year while shooting a MS Thanksgiving 5K/10K fundraising event, and as the event photographer was the only one shooting full frame DSLR. Every one else were using their phones to take pictures of their kids with Santa.
