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?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

I have scanned around 1600 film shots last year - half of my family old photo archive.

Photos were made with lots of different cameras, including SLR.

The best resolution I used was 1600px on the long side. And is was a bit of an overkill. I just wanted to use at least 25% of the high resolution scanner I paid for.

Most of the images were 1200px on the long side (also an overkill).

From a good modern film-SLR, with decent lens you will get around 10 MP, I totally agree here.

Forget about 180 MP or whatever KR claims.
