Sharpness: S3 vs. S2?

Is the new S3 expected to produce SHARPER images since it will not interpolate in order to get the 12 million pixels?

I am used to getting roughly a 9x14" image at 300dpi from my S2. I shoot primarily with the 17-35 Nikkor, which is probably my sharpest lens. Subjects in the foreground need serious sharpening in order to look passable and subjects in the far distance are always blurry at any f stop. Has anyone out there shot a grassy area and noticed the green moldy splotches? Or is there green mold growing inside my head?

Where have you gone, my sweet Velvia?
