I said check the link in the reply, it is written by a guy who works for KM. I wasn't refering to you:lol:

Looks like the new 7D will use the same Sony 10MP sensor as the new Nikon D200 with improved AF. Could be a killer. I'm definitely interested. Should debut at PMA in Feb '06

Given the same size sensor, more pixels = more noise (which must be removed/reduced in camera with software, reducing image quality


Given the same sensor technology, yes. But the technology doesn't stay the same as we all know. The 8Mp Canon 20D has better noise characteristics than the 6Mp 10D. My 8Mp A2 has better noise characteristics than my 2.5Mp C2500 using the same size sensor.Noise becomes less of an issue with each sensor advance.

Actually, the "advance" you are referring to is something known
as noise reduction. It is extremely obvious on images shot
with the A2; especially at high ISOs! Sony's CyberShot F828
used the same sensor, but images produced by it had much
more noise because Sony chose not to apply such heavy noise
reduction.

The "advance" is to do with the better S/N ratios of later generations of sensors. You're obviously not aware of it but technology gradually gets better. Sensors are still in their early days and in 10 years time noise won't be an issue - and it won't be because of software. It'll be advances in hardware.
