agree, don't need the 15mp, but for $799, I'll take it

If you read my PS, you understand where I come from. I agree with you that 15mp is quite an overkilled. Like I have say before, I don't need it nor do I want it. However, unlike the 50d. The main attraction of T1i = HD VIDEO, not 15mp. The 15mp is like a gravy on top of the Turkey. While I may not like the 15mp gravy, I do like the 1080p Turkey - even if it only flap 20 times a seconds

Only problem is the 15MP sensor might actually have worse IQ than the
XSi with its excellent 12MP sensor. It might not be an issue if you
don't shoot above ISO 400, but this was a problem for me when I tried
the 50D and resorted back to the 40D.

However, this move from Canon might force them to differentiate a bit
more from the upcoming 60D, hopefully with pro grade AF in addition
to the expected video feature.
