Even if it's BETTER at High ISO I'd rather it be 12MP and gain the stop or two in noise performance. I'd almost always take a stop or two in noise performance over an extra 3-4MP, down to about 8 MP, that is. Look at the Sony A7s. 12MP low ISO beast!

Let's see how the A7s plays out first. It might be a case of the ISO performance/DR being completely negated once you take the A7R image and shrink it down to 12MP. If this is the case, there is literally no benefit to the 12MP sensor, and in fact you are actually given less flexibility. Not saying this will happen, but I'm interested in seeing how the tests play out.
