anyone do detail comparison of 16vs 20MP by upsacaling 16MP to 20MP?

I mean something like this

use same lens and center AF, than compare the center crop of 16MP (upscale to 20MP) with crop from 20MP sensor

How much more detail do one get?

I am asking because I won't get Panasonic GX9

too expensive, only 4 stop IS (need 5 stop), no weather seal , I don't care 4k

If i want 20MP I have to wait for E-M5 III or I can get E-M5 II real cheap at about US$650

I don't care 4k but i am not sure about 20MP

worth the wait ? and maybe double the price for 16MP E-m5 II

So I am asking if anyone have done such test and if the added detail in 20MP is significant

form what I see in Dpreview comparison, I think there is very little added detail record by 20MP with same lens compare with 16MP

Olympus E-M5 II Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9
