The point

I see, but what's the point in talking about full-well capacity limits, as they relate to are of the sensor and density, if the technology is constantly changing, and the ratio doesn't apply, since the sensor is new vs the old one you're comparing it to? This bothers me, because if things are not limited by physics, but only by the technology used, and the technology is not static, there seems to be no point in mentioning the full-well capacity and the number of pixels vs sensor area.

Here's the point.

This is a discussion about the desirability of more pixels on the sensor. If we are to have that discussion, we should not conflate it by comparing sensors of different generations. The proper comparison would be the a7RIII to the a7III, or the Z6 to the Z7.

Within a generation, pixel pitch is a second order effect with respect to PDR.
