My question was, does a larger sensor size automatically mean a smaller pixel pitch?

The answer is no. A larger sensor might have larger pixels, or smaller pixels, or the same size pixels as a smaller sensor. Depends on the specific sensors.

Okay then, the two sensors to compare are, Sony a7Riii full-frame 43mp and Canon G5X and G3X 20 mp 1-inch type, (sensor built by Sony?)

Do we know if the FF sensor is more pixel-dense than the 11-inch type?

Thanks again,
