Re: sorry in advance but apsc v full frame?

All the discussion so far assumes that pixels are all equal. They are not. A smaller pixel can be more prone to noise, which can impact an image. Also, smaller pixels mean a greater magnification of the image from the lens (when the image is enlarged to the same number of pixels) which means that any lens imperfection is more likely to be visible.

Finally, as some have said, different sensors have different designs/electronics/processors, all of which impact the final image.

In summary, it depends.
