But unlike with film, you cannot get any improvement in image sensor quality without buying a whole new camera unlike buying different and/or update film for $8 a roll.  Compare that to $3000 for a 35mm dSLR, which is the equivelant to film SLRs.

Film chemistry was not so quick to upgrade its quality. It took years to improve ISO performance and it never reached the iso 6400 quality of todays digital, and beyond,  in 50 years. Digital has gone right by that in less than 10 years. If film were so great, it would still have a large market share right now.

I'll stick with my D800e thanks. For reasons of pure nostalgia, I still shoot Fuji on my N80 once in a very long while and remain disappointed in DR/Noise terms when I do.

But hey, if it floats your boat, why not.
