If they can get 10mp's to take good clean high ISO...or even as
good as the past chips...Then why not?

None of the 10MP sensors can even approach the 6MP for quality at
ISOs above 800. Most people (certainly at the D40 end of the
market) won't notice much difference in resolution (especially not
with consumer grade lenses, I'd say).

Kindly provide some manufacturers specs doc to sustain that claim ?

You also need a much faster PC to process 10MP RAW files (I tested
it and I'd have to upgrade just for that, when I'm fine at 6MP)...

As a long time ICT manager I just do not believe such claims .. sorry ..
