So here's something I've been telling for years - proven by everyone's favorite DPReview.

DPReview TV: Why lower resolution sensors are not better in low light


Anyone want to contradict this? I don't. I've always known if you downscale your material, it will look better than the material from a lower (MP-)sized sensor if the tech is the same.

So no need to ask for low resolution sensors anymore if you want "better" photos. The only thing it might affect is the buffers and rolling shutter. And the rolling shutter issue is starting to be non-existing anyway due to the fact that the readout speeds have evolved a lot.
