I agree, but considering there's only 1 CMOS DMF sensor available, and no one really knows its performance for sure, I think the CCD backs are still relevant.

Specially if you consider these will be the backs most will afford on the used market.

The new sensor, used in the 645Z, P1 IQ250 and 'blad H5-50c is a Sony Exmor - it's performance is pretty predictable. It has a 5.3 micron pixel, equivalent to about 30MP on FF - so it should be a pretty known quantity, if we know hoe the Sony A7R and Nikon D800E perform, it will perform much like those, but with a bigger sensor.
