    The info is correct for the most part. There have been big improvements in both CMOS and CCD, however.

    For some reason people just can't seem to grasp the idea that the cleaner images from Canon...

    I'd get a Canon for aviation shooting. As Coldrain says you'll get a better lens choice for this kind of stuff.

    I've seen shots from the D200 @ ISO 1600. Let's just say that the D200 does very well in the noise dept. :)

    Well I've made a few 12X10 from my 6MP D70 and they looked fine to me.

    You don't need to spend a few thousand dollars on a lens for aircraft photography. The Sigma 50-500mm is quite a bit less than $1000 :)

    It depends what you're going to use it for. I find that the ability to shoot from 50mm all the way up to 500mm is extemely useful.
