Way back when when i was a studio rat....we beta tested the cmost and we also tested the production model.
Im sorry to say i cant say anything good about it. At all. Because of the way leaf designed the cmos sensor, the files were very soft. They looked like a softar was on the lens.
It was a very short lived digi back. No one i know that bought one liked it. They have since sold them.
IIRC, we also overheated the beta back. We never ran the same test on the production one so i dont know if they fixed it.. Sensor bloom was also a problem.
Getting a 20x24 out of the cmost is possible but you get what you pay for. They wont be very sharp. Although it might be nice for portraits.
Although $600 is a good deal. It would be a cheap alternative to a polaroid. Since there is no more polaroid. Only Fuji. BTW, where did you see it for $600?
