APS-C & m4/3 -- same pixel pitch -- is APS-C still better?
1

So I was doing some research and was looking at low-light capabilities (based on specs, not actual images) considering pixel size and sensor size.

What I'm curious about is if you have two cameras, one APS-C and one Micro 4/3, but they both have the same (or very similar) pixel pitch, is one still better than the other?  (This is assuming we take sensor design and image processor out of the equation, as those are two additional variables that might be hard to factor in -- especially the processor/processing done by the processor).  So simply put, if you have very similar pixel pitch, is the APS-C still the better of the two?  Or is it semi-irrelevant at that point?
