I find this discussion fascinating. I guess I would label it the battle of the anal-retentives. I think most people don't blow up photos to 24x36 on a regular basis and use a magnifying glass to find the problems in the photo. Even blownup, most people wouldn't notice the difference from viewing distance which is several feet away.

The clear advantage of digital over film for many people is cost. Due to developing cost of film, many people will avoid taking many photos. At a recent horse show, I took around 200 photos. Many of the shots were to try to capture the horse at the right position in the air over a jump. If I had been shooting film, there is no way I would have shot 9 rolls of film.

What good is a camera if you're skip a bunch of shots because you're thinking about the costs of development?
