Ancient post!

If CCD development kept up with CMOS CCD would be superior for everything but long exposure/live view use (it's why Olympus/Panasonic switched from CCD to NMOS (best of both worlds).

CMOS without processing (10 years ago) produced a more noisy picture compared to CCD...CMOS has to be noise reduced first producing a softer image.

Can't say what it would be like today because there aren't any more large sensor CCD cameras.
