The following figures (shown at the 2016 Chicago CMB-S4 meeting) give our estimate of CMB halo lensing mass uncertainty for different estimators of as a function CMB map sensitivity and angular resolution.

Contours of one-sigma mass uncertainty over the CMB map sensitivity and angular resolution plane.


Pure polarization estimators are flat with angular resolution, implying that gains on sigma8(z) from angular resolution in this case will be due to better Poisson statistics of the cluster catalog.
