Quote: Nikon said once that 12mp was the best compromise for their then standard kit lenses.
I am not aware of that - and I doubt Nikon is either
Nikon said at a particular point in the evolution curve 12 MP was the best compromise for resolution (good enough for A3 prints), high ISO noise, processing quality and cost.
I doubt any 12 MP cameras will still be in production at the start of 2013.
It is obvious resolution, high ISO, processing quality and cost are currently moving quickly in favour of DSLR buyers.
On a point of detail standard "kit lenses" do not have a fixed resolution in the sense that image detail is a combination of sensor and lens resolution and never achieves 100% of either in isolation. If sensor resolution is increased an image file contains more resolution - even if taken using a kit lens.

My advice is don't treat the 650D as an Entry Level Camera. It's closer to a professional camera than an entry level one. If someone who wanted to buy a DSLR for the first time and want to have a camera to do the odd shots here and there, I would tell them to either get a Compact Camera or DSLR no higher than the 600D.
