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.

Figure: 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.
