Hi Jim,

Very good demo!

How much of that difference is due to the GFX 100 having more pixels?

A lot of it. Probably most of it. Both those lenses are really so good that they could use 800 MP sensors. But at the end of the day, it's easier to make an equivalent lens for a larger sensor.



If the lenses in both formats are capable if resolving up to 800mp, would it be accurate to assume that the sensor size makes no difference from a resolution perspective if both cameras have the same megapixel count? If that's the case, what would be the reason to spend more on a camera with a slightly bigger sensor if a camera with a slightly smaller sensor can deliver identical (or at least very similar results) for less?
