Thanks for everyone's input. I was about to buy a D90 since it has
22.2% more AF points but then I did some more math and realized the
50D has 25% more MP. 25 > 22.2 so that was all I need to know and I
preordered a 50D but it was very close (less then 3% difference)

I am just a bit surprised by what you base your choise on. Most
experienced shooters will know that the difference between a 15 mp
and 12 mp sensor has no value at all. There is MUCH more to the
equation than that.

Hope you are aware of this.

Actually it can make a difference in noise. If the noise was exactly the same with both cameras, the 50Ds image will be cleaner when downsized (or the D90 up-sized) to the same size. Of course we haven't even seen these cameras in the marketplace yet so who knows, but every little bit helps when making large prints.
