Canon 50D specs leaked

According to this: Canon's China website leaked the specs...

15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor
1.6x crop
Dust Reduction
Auto Brightness Processing
95% viewfinder .97 magnification
9 point af (All Cross Type)
35 meter area equipped with high-precision sensors
AF Fine Tuning
ISO 100-12800
6.3 fps (high speed) 3fps (low speed)
Buffer: 16 RAW - 60 JPG - 10 RAW+JPG
920,000 points VGA 3.0-inch LCD monitor
100,000 cycle shutter
Rugged magnesium alloy body

So, this leaves me hopeful that the 5D replacement will be closer to the 18 megapixel range.
