Guy,

S/N is primarily a function of the number of photons each pixel collects. Smaller sensors have smaller pixels and collect less light than larger sensor pixels.

I'm well aware of that. It's simply my curiosity to see if say a 1/1.7" sensor can be coaxed with DeepPRIME (for a screen display) to look as good as say a 1" sensor without DeepPRIME at whatever high ISO comparison I want to play with. Or a 1" sensor compared to a 4/3" sensor.

Tinkering on the fringes of equivalence I'd guess you would call it.
