Not to rehash a topic that's been debated
many times before, but...
There *is* the cost (and hassle) of film and
processing in the equation, and other "analog"
issues with film and film scanners that I
wouldn't mind being rid of.
For some folks (not me, yet, I guess) 3 Mpix
appears to be quite enough.
I mean, the choice is tough even when there's
money on hand. I thought long and hard before
buying my Nikon scanner; the alterative was
a Canon D30 or Fuji S1, and starting to put
away film forever.
