Yes, in a few different ways:
-Higher MP allows you to crop in a lot more - turn what would have been a much smaller image, into one with more detail
-Higher MP also allows you to print larger at equal dpi - at 300 pixels per inch, you get ~ 2x the size
-Higher MP in the 33x44mm chip size is actually more helpful, due to the pixel sites being larger than they are in a 35mm FF 24x36mm - bigger pixel sites can equal better light capturing
I'll be interested to see if there is any real improvement.
But your first point is exactly what the OP did not want to consider.
Oh and so is your second point.
Your third point is news to me I hadn't realized that the chip size was larger than FF. Well you live and learn.
There will be a lot of people trying to prove that they know if there will be any real improvement. I won't be listening to them. I will look at the images and make my own mind up.
