I guess that's true if you car about on paper specs more than AF
performance, build quality, image quality, FPS, or lens system
quality. Which seems to be the case with a lot of people.

We'll wait to see the AF performance.

We know how both the 40D and D300 perform AF wise, this will be the

You don't "know" squat. How fast does the 50D AF acquire focus?
How well does the center AF point perform with an f/1.4 wide open
lens? How accurate and consistant within DOF is the AF? How quickly
do the perimeter AF points achieve AF vs. the center AF point at
f/2.8? How well does the 50D AF work for wedding shoots? You don't
know any of this do you?

the real question is.. will the 50D lose its tracking in AI servo if the subject fall in the gap between the points? just like the 40D does?

You've never seen a 50D let alone evaluated one. Oh that's right you
don't even own a 40D but you're an expert on it's AF performance.

but the AF on the 50D seem to be the same as the 40D.. darn. They could have least put 11 points.

Wait to see the 50D AF performance, or try it yourself when
production cameras are available (if you dare.)
