18 MP?!!? Completely insane!

I already thought that the 15mp on the 50D were complete nonsense!! And now 18mp!?! When Canon unveiled the new G11 last week with a new 10mp sensor (compared to the "old" 15mp sensor of the G10) I was very hopeful that Canon had learned something and that they would not scarifice image quality to more megapixels anymore!! And now this!

Why don't they make a 10mp APS-C or even full frame camera with brand new sensor technology? THAT would be worth updating! But with this thing I will probably still keep my 40D for a while
