ASI294 (IMX294) effective pixel size.

So, I have ben researching the pants off an eventual move to mono imaging, but one of the things it has highlighted to me is that the source I read might have gone a basic fact about the IMX294 based cameras wrong.

I had read and accepted that the "Pixel" size of the IMX294 was the "super pixel" size of the RGGB block (Actually that is even misleading as each "Pixel" is four sub pixels of each colour) but reading tonight it looks more like it is the "Pixel" (2X2 binned block of each colour) size, so like most OSC cameras it's effective resolution is likely lower than than the reported pixel size indicates when compared to a mono of the same "dimensions".

Does anyone know definitively?
