We consumers haven't even gotten our hands on Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) devices yet. 27000:1 dynamic range with 70% QE anyone? They're expensive but only a couple of companies own the patents and they want to make a return on their investment.

I think it is most important to have reasonable experience with various equipment types first, not solely relying on statistical details, to support an advice to another like this.
