I've made super-detailed 20" x 30" prints of landscape images from 11MP Canon 1Ds RAW files that look as good as anything I ever got from medium format film.

I would agree with that except for colour. The colour from film is better in my opinion.

I've scanned colour negs from 6x7. Prints are phenomenal. Files are enormous. Theoretically 80mp though there's grain. However prints are brilliant, but too tedious for normal use.
I still have my 6x7 cameras (last used maybe 2 years ago)
