18 MP vs 14 MP,
the 7D/600D need to be resampled to 14 MP to compare at image level.
My guess the gap will be narrowed.

No, this is not correct.

Um .. it is actually correct. You will notice that the poster did qualify that statement with the words "to compare at image level"

The pixel sizes are the same on the G1 X and 7D/60D/T3i. So no resizing needs to be done. Each camera just "sees" different FOV if you use the same 35mm FOV focal length with the cameras at the same location. 60D will see a wider view just like an HD TV compared to a 4:3 tube TV.

Well - that rather depends. I'd suggest that it would be prudent to resize if your interested in final image quality for a given composition - which most of us are (well, less people on this forum than in the general community I guess - LOL!)
