You're probably remembering the FUD associated with the early versions of (Canon's venture into) CMOS vs. (everyone else's mainstay) CCD imaging chip technologies. ...twas yet another version of the classic tale "new tech is too complex, it'll never work" story. You can set your impression of quality aside as it's a story that has long since passed (Canon largely prevailed).
