John,
i'm not an expert of any kind in dslr cameras, but please make sure you are comparing apples to apples. i'm afraid there is no such thing as small DSLR.

i'll speculate that what you had read, applies to lower resolution sensors 6, 10 and 12MPix. those sensors are more forgiven to slight out of focus and motion blur situations. That's why people with higher resolution sensors did not like non-Nikon lenses

Best regards,
Vlad
