all else being equal, more pixels is better.

True, though in my experience all else rarely is equal. For example I prefer my D500 (20M) over my D850 (45) for bird and small wildlife photography. This is because the "low resolution" camera handles low light better, tracks fast moving subjects better and has a slightly higher burst speed.  Also cropping more aggressively in the 850 leads to more noise.  But for landscape and cityscapes, it is always the D850.
