Yeah, they release allot of cheap primes, but they are all cdd sensor in the entry market. And do not compare to nikon, pentax or canon in performance. Given the choice of a t1i vs the A390, think most people will take the canon over the sony if price was not a concern.
Movie mode and megapixels mean more than CMOS vs CCD to entry level shoppers. A lot of amazing work has been done with CCD sensors. I saw a gallery a few days ago of night shots taken with a D60 and I was really impressed.

how reliable would sony be though there coming out with new things left and right but im sure they cant keep it up at this rate, Im probably wrong i don't follow Sony at all, but in my area Sony doesn't seem too big compared to Canon and Nikon and im thinking thats the consensus world wide they always been big names so much that one would buy that brand over another right?
Sony is releasing a lot right now in addition to all the Minolta and Zeiss lenses that will work natively on Sony cameras. The reason they're releasing a lot is they're new (compared to the legacy companies) in the camera market and releasing many innovative things. They are growing though, will catch up with the big boys soon. For reliability, I've only seen internet complaints (and mainly gearheads coming here to bash Sony) about the Alpha line of cameras. Actual users I've shot with really didn't have many complaints with them, just the guy I used to shoot often with sold his to fund a Leica.
