But the moment you go to medium/large format films and cameras, film can give you something that would probably cost the same as a small car if you tried to find a matching digital camera.
About 5 years ago I did a close comparison of Fujichrome Provia 100f in a Pentax 67 (medium format film, "crop factor" = 0.5) with a Panasonic Lumix GH2 (micro four-thirds sensor, "crop factor" = 2), and found the results to be remarkably similar. Particularly regarding resolution. This was an outdoors environmental portrait shoot with nothing too challenging in dynamic range (which is even more of a challenge for slide film than for digital). That was the point at which I stopped arguing in favour of film with anyone. I still put a few rolls of slide film through my Pentax 67 every year, but I admit to myself that it's for the nostalgia and the challenge challenge, and to keep the old skills alive, not a quest for superior quality.
