The CMOS vs CCD topic has been discussed in the technology forum. There is no difference between CCD and CMOS. They both detect photons. They both do an AD conversion from the number of photons detected. Exactly the same result.

What happened was that (approximately at the same time as changing to CMOS) the Bayer filters were changed. In order to improve sensitivity, the overlap of the color channels was increased. This decreases the color saturation in the image. Something you can get back by simply increasing the color saturation. You can actually say that the newer Bayer sensors are closer to the Foveon colorwise.
