the pro sports shooters use digital merely because of the work flow and 'good enough' for mass media application
this is partially true, but just try to get a just "good enough" picture published inSports Illustratiedor any publication for that matter, it's probably not going to happen. And what about the other pros I mentioned, just "good enough" is not what their customers expect. There is a local pro that has several poster sized prints hanging in his studio that he shot in jpeg, and they are tack sharp. I shot film for years, and loved every minute of it, but now there is something that is just as good and a whole lot easier. Film is not dead yet, I think it will be around for a long time to come, but when was the last new 35mm film camera introduced that everyone just had to have?
