Re: 35mm camera vs Digital DSLR with 50mm prime lens in manual mode?

you should borrow a film camera and try it for a week or two.  see if you like it.  i did. i hated it.  i couldn't see any advantage to it over a modern digital (granted the d40 is a bit out-dated).  if you're going to scan it anyway, the last advantage drops away. and why do you WANT to shoot in manual? i agree you should know how but that would be the last reason i would buy a film camera.
