Maybe we need 24 MP after all, and 36 MP is not enough

The stated resolving power of "most films" (120lp/mm at least) roughly matches what the D3X can do, about 3000 lines accross the height (in landscape orientation, i.e. the smallest dimension of the film).

But we did see the value with film of finer grain and did shoot with 25 ASA film. 200 lp/mm would require a sensor with approx. twice as many pixels then the upcoming 36 MP D800 (if rumors on specifics for this camera are to be believed).

And yes DOF with a 25 ASA film was quite not the same as 100.
