I'm looking forward to getting a 50D (and if things go according to plan, a 7D also), but I'd still like to see Canon apply the new technology to lower pixel-count sensors. It seems to me that if Canon can make an 18-MP sensor with no more noise than last year's 10-MP sensor, then applying the same technology to the 10-MP sensor would enable it to shoot at still higher ISO's (as they apparently have done with the G11).

Well, the 50D is a great camera and you should be very pleased.

I don't think you can draw conclusions on what might be with current tech at different pixel densities. Remember that Canon does not make the sensor in the G11 (it's a Sony CCD) and from the initial photos I'm seeing on the Web I'm not impressed with the IQ but more controlled tests will obviously tell more.
