Short answer, you can't bypass "the disadvantages that come with
higher pixel densities such as diffraction issues, increased
sensitivity towards camera shake, reduced dynamic range, reduced high
ISO performance", according to
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos50d/page31.asp . It's physics,
man!

I'm sorry to tell you that DPR is completely wrong on this issue. Of course, if you use their method for downsampling, they might be right. But their method is clearly flawed!

It's understandable that you can be a bit confused because misleading

That is hilarious! They ban at random! I guess they should ban Eric Fossum, who developed the first CMOS sensor as well. Because he is very clear on this issue, "IQ isn't all about the number of pixels, but number of pixels helps, all else being equal."
