Not a surprise as said in DPR 5D II's review

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos5dmarkii/38

However at per-pixel basis. If you downsize 5D2 to 5D1's size or upsize 5D1 to 5D2's size, 5D2 should be better, but still only slightly not head and shoulder difference.  5D2 is noticeably better in resolution however, and can further extend beyond ISO 3200.

I own both 5D1 and 5D2 as well as 5D3.

Yes...not exactly news in 2013.  What was incredible about this in 2008 was that Canon crammed 21MP into that sensor and kept the noise down...I owned a 5D and upgraded to the 5D2 and image quality from both was (and still is) awesome.

Fast forward to 2013 and Canon sensor technology is stuck in...well....2008:)  Hopefully in 2014 Canon will get ahead of the sensor tech again....the D800E is an awfully tempting option but I'm invested in Canon glass.

There are a difference between 12 and 21Mp, but you need a good lens and know what you are looking after, I did a "double blind test " years ago with 5d and 5dmk2 and 50cm big copies. 15 persons was looking at different copies and then vote for the best copy and from which camera,  3 person saw the difference in a tiny texture from the 21Mp camera , 12 persons did not see any difference.

If you know to what  to look after there are a difference

The same true between 22/24mp and 36mp that you'd need to use even better lenses and with better techniques with even higher 'diminishing return'
