and given the fact that, "digital compact cameras have substantially smaller sensors offering a similar number of pixels. As a consequence, the pixels are much smaller, which is a key reason for the image quality difference", the results may be disappointing

pixel count does not accurately determines image quality, pixel quality (among other factors) defines image quality
image quality may be better in low megapixels, if the pixel quality is better

also, did you save in RAW or JPG?
