When reading this please do not take this as I am trying to be argumentative. I am not "orgasmic" about the Kodak camera. I just felt that with a characterization like that, it might help to add some info.

I agree that the Kodak will not be the best forever. However, Kodak has consistently had the highest resolution and arguably the best Nikon mount time after time.

I think an apt comparison would be a scan of a high resolution film scanner vs. the Kodak. I would argue that the Kodak outperforms film on MTF tests; a more complete testing then megapixel resolution. If you are curious about this, in a technical way: http://www.normankoren.com/Tutorials/MTF7.html.

As far as pixel density/mm goes it isn't necessarily a good thing to have a higher density as mentioned previously. Think of a real world 2.1 megapixel Nikon 950 vs a D1. The difference isn't just the lens.

Having said all that, I do have to admit to a bit of kid at Christmas feeling sometimes with technology.
