Quote: Its fairly widely known that the CMOS sensor technology is superior to the CCD technology, CCD is cheaper though

Is it? Actually the reason that most manufacturers are moving to CMOS is that CCD is more expensive to manufacture. CCD is also better at high ISO which is why most small sensor cameras use it. The 10Mp CCD used by the Sony A230 is an upgraded version of the one used in the Nikon D200 which was regarded a professional camera. The D300 has the new Sony 12.3 Mp CMOS sensor but a lot of people are not convinced it's better than the D200 for image quality.
