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.
