Yes, and that is what the features are being compared to. The claim
is obvously that in challenging light conditions the Fuji gives
better performance than you would get by downsizing to 6 MP in
post-processing.

I'll believe it when I see it (printed, of course.)

But really...if you want a 6MP camera you don't have to wait...just
buy a Nikon D40 now.

A doubly silly comment:
1. The Fuji is both a 6 and a 12 megapixel camera depending on
circumstances.

2. The D40 is doubtless a fine choice for many purposes, but people
buy compact cameras for a reason (just as people buy DSLRs for a
reason); a D40 is not a substitute for a compact for some purposes.

I see no statements in the press release that this new technology will be limited to compact sized sensors. In the press release, references are made to both compact and DSLR cameras, as well as technologies that are in the DSLR sensors. I believe this new sensor design is to be used across their entire range.
