It's still arguable whether 35mm film is better than digital for video but there is no contest when it comes to stills.

Re: Photographer hostility?

One of the things that has changed is how we view our images. In the film days we may have used a X4 or X8 loupe to look at negs or slides. Today we look at images at 100% magnification in Photoshop (or other application) and we are looking more critically at everything. A while back I printed a few Nikon D1 images (2.7mp files) on A2 media and I found myself looking at the image rather than the resolution. Maybe some people are becoming led by technology and forgetting about the end result. The A2 prints looked fine to me, maybe I couldn't see all the hairs on a fly's leg, but there was enough quality in the image.

Re: Photographer hostility?

Nice to hear that you bought a EOS 1V. That was my last camera before I shifted to digital.

The 35mm negative/slide size is of course same as the 5D series or 1D X. The difference is more in the ISOs. Most of the time I used ISO 100 or ISO 50 velvia slides. Now with my 1D Mark IV, I use insane ISOs. So there has to be a difference in sharpness due to the higher shutter speed in the DSLRs.
