Hope you'll enjoy your new acquisition!
As to your question regarding sensor-size vs. mega-pixels:
- Greater sensor-size means more light captured, which translates into less noise
- More MPs mean higher resolution, but less light per photocell, thus potentially more noise

So the best thing is a 6x6cm 40MP sensor :wink:
