Despite its two megapixel deficit the Canon EOS 30D demonstrates two things; firstly that there's really no discernable difference between eight and ten megapixels and secondly that the quality of image processing is just as important as a good sensor and good lens. We often talk about 'per pixel sharpness' and how important it is to an image, this comparison is a good example of just that.
