500D over-rated images? SX1 Better?

Hi there,

I was very excited to hear that the 500D was coming out and had 1080P HD shooting.

However I have trawled the internet looking at every sample of the 500D I can find, and every time they pop up I feel disappointed by its 1.) Softness 2.) Lack of depth and 3.) Lack of Richness in the images. Even with L lenses... When I compare the 500D samples to say the Powershot SX1 samples, the SX1 always seems to beat the 500D to my eye. To put it in one word, the 500D images look 'thin'. Is anyone else finding this? Having huge trouble making a decision here!
Thanks,
Sam
