Very interesting analysis.

I had a recent (very successful!) gallery show of prints up to 20"x30" from the E-3. Got many comments about how "natural" the prints looked. Several people said they didn't realize at first they were photographs. They used terms such as "relaxed, smooth and inviting" to describe them. Several, including other photographers, thought they were from film, though the photographers said they were puzzled by the lack of film grain. They were surprised to hear they were digital. Several, including buyers, said they generally don't like prints from digital cameras because they are too "self-conscious" in that they have too much unnecessary detail, too obviously photographic, and too unpleasant to live with on the wall, even if initially striking.

Interesting.  In particular, the comment about photos having "too much unnecessary detail".  I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to start a thread about that in the Open Talk Forum, as that's a matter that interests me greatly, and I don't want to derail this thread (unless others wish to discuss it here), and would also like to discuss it with a broader audience.
