So when you see a difference in the printed result, it has to be a
difference in the processing -- for instance, raw conversion,
sharpening, or resampling to the final print resolution.

The opints you are making seem perfectly reasonable, but I find it hard to reconcile them with the prints. I don't believe that the slight but consistent detail/noise advantage I'm seeing from the large pixel cameras in any given format (5D vs 1Ds II, F30 vs G7, 30D vs XTi, D3 vs 1Ds III, etc) comes down to differences in processing. I'm pretty familiar with RAW conversion, sharpening, and resampling, as are the many other photographers whose work I have observed.
