    Default Which makes the best print?

    Which makes the best large print (e.g. 16x20") ? Ignore Large Format for now.

    I voted for medium format camera with traditional method, but I would imagine that a digitally processed print can be equally good (or perhaps even better) with a sufficiently high-resolution scan.

    Having said that, though, the new Sinar 22-megapixel sensor for medium format cameras does make one wonder how much longer this will be true....

    Default Large format.

    Sorry, can't ignore large format. The absolute best print I've ever seen is a LF (4x5) print of a landscape. I've yet to see such high quality from medium format. Digital is not even in the picture unless you talk of MF/LF scanning backs.
