Im doing some research about a possible upgrade and I was wondering how the sensors compare , looking at the sensor size difference it appears that the M9 has 80% more resolution, but also 80% more area, so wouldnt the respective pixel/square MM be comparable?
area of sensors
m8 : 18 x 27 = 486 sq mm
m9 : 23.9 X 35.8 = 855.62 sq mm
MPixel : M8 : 10.3 vs M9 : 18.5 (which is approx 80% larger)
80% larger of 486 sq mm is..........874.8 sq mm quite close
I do know that of course a newer sensor has better technology re: IR filters and higher ISO
but looking at the actual numbers, Im thinking I might be better off with some additional lenses instead of a new camera body. Which will guarantee that my M8 will die right afterwards
