I remember the first time i saw a medium format film negative printed.  Both a 6 x 9 negative as well as a 6 x 4.5 negative printed to only 5 x 7 absolutely CRUSHED a 35mn negative printed the same size.  It was so different, you could pick out the medium format print 100% of the time.

Clearly resolution mattered then.  Why would it not matter now??

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.

1. In general photo paper will have much much better resolution than printer.

2. Lenses on medium format probably better .

3. Effect from grain would be much less on print from medium format.

In digital world it does not matter after certain point how good your camera is from point of view of dpi on paper.
