With cmos, I need to isolate first every different NEF series depending on the lighting condition, make a preset for each, and batch process before fine tuning the images. CCD has his issues too but if Nikons were using modern CCD sensors, they would offer something unique for wedding and portrait photographers. s 24MP Full frame CCD (with video mode, no rolling shutter issue) would be awesome but this will never happen.

According to this poster, any differences in color rendering are not due to CCD vs. CMOS. A short quote:

There's no such thing as "CMOS color" or "CCD color". CMOS and CCD both use silicon photodiodes, and they have identical monochrome responses. The "color" comes from the organic filters that are screened onto the naturally monochrome chip, and those are the same regardless of whether the chip is CCD or CMOS.

There are differences in the organic filters used by different manufacturers, but those different filters could be applied just as easily to either a CCD or CMOS sensor.
