Unless I am missing something...

You cannot make statements like that. You have no knowledge of the
50d AF performance and as far as build goes the 50d is a match for
the D300. Go read up on the specs and then wait to see how the AF
performs before putting your foot in your mouth.

...the 40D Autofocus system and general build quality (ie: weather sealing, or lack thereof) is carried over into the 50D (at least by direct comparison of information contained on this site).

Since I own a 40D, the logical conclusion would be, if the 50D is "essentially a 40D body wrapped around a newly-developed 15 megapixel sensor" (direct DPR quote) then I believe we already have a very good, reliable means of knowing the AF performance and build quality of the 50D.

Until proven otherwise, I stand by my statement. The D300 has better build quality and AF performance, though the 50D looks to have superior image quality.
