Because we compare features other than optical quality as well, and because choice depends on the intended use of the camera.

Some of these issues are discussed in the long thread near here at There have been other extensive similar discussions as well, I think,

The most important points for me are....

1. The facility to view images on the spot and therefore retake them if necessary.

2. Getting away from the plague of dust, and the time involved in filmscanning, if digital editing is desired.
