It is true for medium format, in 35mm 4800 is native resolution, but the
question is whether 3200 is not enough for medium format, I have made some
calculations, maybe for 6x4,5 it is not so much, but for 6x6, 6x7 and 6x9
3200dpi should be enough to make 300dpi prints in bigger size....
I am waiting for user reviews for the minolta, it seems to be a great
machine... And less expensive than the Nikon.
