An interesting comparison.

One point, make sure you are comparing apples with apples with QE. Sony uses a different QE measure than Kodak so 58% versus 77% may not be accurate.

5,000 full well difference won't mean much. My 16803 is 100,000 full well and that does make a difference over my 8300 25,000 full well.

What you find with full well is with fast systems bright stars will bloat and overexpose easily. So you counter with shorter exposure times. Not so much an issue with longer focal length but I still see it with my CDK17.

Unless your focal length is really quite long I would not worry too much about the smaller pixels.
