-Higher MP in the 33x44mm chip size is actually more helpful, due to the pixel sites being larger than they are in a 35mm FF 24x36mm - bigger pixel sites can equal better light capturingI understand that you referred to the 50 megapixel medium format cameras, compared to full frame 50 megapixel Canon in 5DS 5DSr.
Yes, but 33x44 is the crop version of medium format (like the 40mp microlensed Kodak chip, etc) most the Dalsa/Kodak stuff is 36x48.
As for the 24"x36" prints, the 50MP will have a much better output, as you're translating ~272 pixels to 1 inch of paper, so close to the 300dpi that your eye can see. I've had folks pull out a loop and flashlight to peak, the files really hold up well.
I'm in line to rent the 5DsR once it's out, and will compare it to the Pentax 645Z ad the Hasselblad H4D-50. It's one of those where depending on the situation, each has their strengths. E-TTL should be huge, with the B1's and such
