Yes Marvin,I agree with the point 1 and about the point 2, digital uses native 
pixels, they don't have personality, the film emulsion can have more grains or 
less grains, they could be bigger or smaller, they can be distributed different 
with areas more dense or less dense, it could have different layers or not, and 
even different types of emulsion support, they give every film its personality; 
the digital image has a different nature and it's the reason digital software 
tries to copy the Velvia look, the Tri X look, the T grain look, etc. 

The lenses situation is similar, good film lenses have different "character" 
and the original Sonnar is not the exception, digital media also tries to copy 
the film lenses character via software, however, as the Chinese Emperor said 
when a craftsman showed him a mechanical nightingale, "why to hear the false 
nightingale if i can hear the true nightingale".
Thank you very much for your comment Marvin.

I will be off line for some days
