I'm going to generalize here -- so tech guys, hold your fire, please -- but in many cases more MPs have had an impact on low-light performance, Personally, I'd rather have better ISO performance.

This was correct some years ago, but after they got very efficient micro lenses on the sensors, the sensor area is what determines the noise level. So a 12 Mp, 24 Mp and 50 Mp camera will give the same noise with a given exposure, also at very high ISO values. There might be a small difference at extreme ISO, but nothing that matters for us as low light photographers. Even mr. Fossum, the inventor of the CMOS sensor, have stated this. Real world tests will tell the same.
