I now have a camera that rivals medium format film for resolution while provided un-imagined convenience what am I supposed to talk about how I haven't had an SDM failure? No one wants to hear that either. I would like some more lenses to choose from we could talk about that.

I'm glad you like your camera. However, I would argue that it doesn't rival medium format film. I would argue you need atleast 50 megapixels to equal medium format film. Some sources say as much as 63 to 125 megapixels. http://www.jonathangazeley.com/2011/02/how-many-megapixels-do-you-get-from-film/

More likely, your camera is probably on par with a 35mm film camera. I don't like to argue, but I have a friend into medium format film and she keeps me straight on this.

I shoot a lot of film and it's mostly for aesthetic reasons not resolution.  If you are careful with medium format film  using a tripod  and ensuring it's scanned well you can match the resolution of the K-3 but the K-3 can snap away all day with far less effort.

this is a comparison of the K-3 and my Rolleiflex 2.8

I love shooting film but the K-3 changes things when it comes to ultimate image quality.
