I quite agree, a matter of personal choice. I get p*ssed off when people say it meeds 67, or choose any other number, megapixels for digital to match film which is patently ridiculous. Which film? what other parameter than resolution? I get better dynamic range, a smoother look and plenty of resolution from digital. My prints look more 3 dimensional and real - particularly skin tones. I still like the look of B&W film for portraits, actually, but not for anything else.

Some photographers prefer film so for them it is better, obviously.
best regards,
Frank

But that doesn't mitigate that the other works "better" for others, and no amount of discussion is going to change that. Even if it is as simple as
someone likes to use a particular camera, that's good enough IMO.
