While the EOS 10D image does appear to be sharper this time, we could have improved things by sharpening the upsampled SD10 image. Overall the only noticeable difference is in the detail visible in the tree on the Bailey's label.
What these three comparisons have proven is that the SD10 image is (for all intents and purposes) at least as detailed and containing as much resolution as a six megapixel image from a Bayer pattern sensor. That said it can also be argued that you can produce an 'X3 like' image from a six megapixel camera by simply downsampling the image (and that most of those cameras do have the advantage of native JPEG output).
