I'm seriously conserned about the 50D detail level!

don't put too much faith in imaging resource site

For all their tests, they let every camera use "all" autofocus points instead of using just the center one or even manual focusing. This leads to different focus distances for different models which if you concentrate on one area of a test photo, can make one model look like it has great detail and another model look soft and lacking detail.

So instead of looking at the same part of a test photo for every model you are considering, look at the "best" area of focus for each model. Also don't forget that different cameras have different levels of default sharpness setting. So a model that looks softer with less detail also might just have it's sharpness low and you need to apply more to make it look like one that appears sharper.
