1. If you are like me and appreciate the finer things associated with instant gratification, shooting and waiting for film to be developed and scanned is going to be a real paradigm shift.

Paradigm shift?  Digital is the paradigm shift.

Film has been with us for decades.  It's the model that digital is based upon.  People seem to want their digital files to look like film (which is partly why Nik, DxO, and VSCO software are profitable.) If one wants a film aesthetic then just use film.

I use the Nikon F3, the Leica M6 and M4, a 4x5 view camera, and FX DSLR and mirrorless APS-C digital cameras all on a pretty equal basis.  They are all great tools for their own specific applications.

Within a lexicon of image making we call a daguerreotype a daguerreotype.  And cyanotype is a cyanotype.  A tintype is a tintype ( Maybe an image originating with film should still be called a photograph but an image created with a digital camera should instead be called an electrograph.
