This is starting to go in circles. You stated the mRAWS were good ("stunning" actually). If they are ok and the full size isn't then the difference is only pixel peeping/magnification. If the mRAWS were only a bit better but images with them still clearly a notch below 40D images you are happy with then it's a different story.
Its the task of understanding what is causing the massive degradation in image quality from just moving the subject when this camera is supposed to be the "Sports Action" tool that it clearly is not in this example. However there seems to be a dozen or more people who are simply willing to settle for the inferior quality. Even at 25% of its original size, the image quality is not there. So resizing to the smaller pixel output of the 40D to seemingly compact the image to get to the quality of a 40D at full resolution is not an educated option. Having the larger image with the crisp resolution appearance of the 40D's full size image is the goal with buying a camera that has a higher MP and greater resolution. Anything less is insufficient quality. Period. Maybe no one gets that and simply accepts that having higher resolution is going to deminish the quality, when I want answers to why and I get that I'm an idiot for wanting to know how to fix this... because its just this way and no other.
