More like a downgrade, if the intention is to "see" the picture and take again if the picture is not good enough; because the photog knows not enough to shoot "properly" in the first place with film, or needs a preview to be more confident that he gets his pictures.
More like switching systems, if looking for ease and found convinence in digital previews, uploading to press offices/internet, immediate printing and absolute control over the final image very quickly.
More like upgrading, if the intention is to produce images above (read nirvana) and beyond what he can achieve with his film slr.
So, it is all the above. Only the upgrader/switcher knows the real answer if he/she is honest enough. Downgraders do not know enough to tell the difference.
