Are you willing to let film die off? How do you really feel?

Re: I shot film for 50+ years

But you will respect us younger folks who used digital long enough and early enough on to know that neither medium is better than the other, right?

Since getting the photography bug as a boy around 1950,
I have acquired and used 60+ film cameras, including a
couple of Kodak box cameras, an Argus C3, several 1960's
era Voightlanders (Vito CLR & Bessamatic), two Nikon F's,
several Canon SLRs (AE-1, A-1, F1N, etc), several Pentax
SLRs (Spotmatic and the whole M series), a few TLR's and
a Mamiya 645. They are all now sitting on shelves around
my home den/office, unused for about a decade.

I am now totally a digital shooter with a active set of
cameras that spans the gamut from several small Point and
Shooters to a few high end DLSRs. If film does finally go
away, I will have some fond memories of the many pictures I
took with it over the years, but I won't feel any real loss.
