S50 uses Sony's new 5mp 1/1.8 CCD : )

This is a new sensor. It is listed on phils site!

Glancing through Phil's reviews I don't see any examples of 5MP
cameras using a 1/1.8 inch sensor size. (The 5MP Nikons use a
larger 2/3" size.)

Given that the s45 has worse noise than a s30, won't an s50 likely
have even more noise?

Have there been recent improvements in sensors that would
counteract this problem?

I'd love more resolution (I want to be able to make 16x20 prints on
my s9000 with my pics but I'm not sure how much more noise
would be acceptable.

Thoughts?
