Well said, like a nice dissertation. I have been on film for a long, long time and then took the plunge 6 months ago, to buy a Oly C4000.
My discovery of digital are like expensive camera, almost 800 bucks which cost more than my SLR, very slow start up time and long shutter lag, battery life limited when battery last quite a few months in a SLR.
One more disappointment - small aperture! Most digicams could only go down to F8 or F11 and no smaller. Small aperture like F16 or F22 are great for landscapes, close-ups and some outdoor portraits and perhaps quite a few other situations.
So, for me, digital has been an expensive discovery!
