I'm a professional studio portrait photographer. I regularly take the 12mb files from the d700 from its native 34 MB much bigger sizes in Photoshop.

The standard size @ 300 dpi is approx 12x16" but that's no real gauge of the quality of an interpolated print up sized in PS. I regularly sell clients prints up 24x30" or even 30x40" from these files and they still look fantastic!

Yes it's subjective and probably depends on the quality of the file and detail you're looking for, but unless you want to line your walls with your image, you'll probably be just fine with most of the CCD's out there.

Disclaimer: I've recently purchased an SBIG 8300c and when I get my head fully around it, I'll share my experiences with print sizes!
