The same light falls on the sensor but technology advancements are
needed to maintain fill factor and signal to read noise ratio. Canon
has shown all the needed advancements (and then some) in a 1.3x
experimental sensor with > 50 Megapixels though so we just need to
wait and see how good this new camera is. Even just with the
technology of the 450D I wouldn't expect this camera to be a poor
performer at high ISO;

Since they have the above history, I think it's reasonable to assume that fill-factor will be maintained or improved despite the smaller pixels. That's one area where process technology helps.
