If you are digitizing film images, then direct digital capture has significant advantages over the shoot-process-scan of film. And while film still inherently has more resolution than 6 Mpixel digital, this advantage is not at all apparent at print sizes up to A3 size, where there are sufficient pixels in a 6 Mpixel image to produce a quality print.
The principal downside of current DSLRs is the field-of-view crop factor which makes ultra wide angle photography impractical. However, the 28+mm range is easily accessible, and the FOV crop factor gives a huge "boost" to telephoto lenses, akin to getting a 1.4X teleconverter without optical or aperture losses. The other advantage of digital is instant editing and exposure review.
I still have both and N80 and a D100, but the D100 gets the most play. The N80 is mostly relegated to ultra wide angle work. Since A3 is plenty big for my uses, I don't personally see an overwhelming advantage to film. But for other types of photography, the advantages of film may be significant.
