How will reducing the pixel count increase image quality?

For a definitive answer I think we have to wait and see how G11 performs.

That will answer the question 'whether', I was asking the question 'how', or to rephrase, 'why do you expect reducing pixel count to increase image quality?'

In the mean time we can only make unfair comparisons of different generations of CCDs and processing.

Completely unfair. How do you think a 12MP super CCD might perform (at least for vertical and horizontal subjects)?
