Lets face it ! The image quality of a 36MP camera is resolution wise about at the same level of a large format (film) camera....!

It's nowhere near.

35mm film can be scanned at around 20Mpx, 35mm is 864mm² so that's 23 000 pixels per mm²

5x4 film is 12903mm² so around 300Mpx

Even if you decide not to believe that 35mm can be scanned at 20Mpx and say it's only 5, that's still 75Mpx for the big sheet.
