Ok WOW, lets put it another way. I have some B&W prints that I took in the early 70's with what at that time was the top dog Nikon. Nikon F2 with a 50mm 1.2 lens. These photos show detail so amazing that I've never seen it beat by any mainstream digital camera. I know a Hassablad or something like that with a digital back may do the same thing but I'm would like to limit this discussion to normal affordable camera's not 50K machines. These pictures that I speak of were taken with Kodak Tri-X.
