Does digital have a long way to go to catch up with film? People say the D800 is like having a medium format. So who is right?

I think when people say "36 MP is like having a medium format" they mean DIGITAL format. I do not think when people say that they mean that 36 MP would even come close to the quality of the best medium format films.

As someone who has shot a lot of medium format film, I can say that even 24MP FF sensors easily match MF Film in many ways, and exceed it in others.  36MP just raises the bar more.

Medium format digital is a completely different beast.  In any event, the Nikon D800/E has easily killed the entry level medium format digital market.  I sold off my MFD to buy the D800E.  No contest.
