Re: When did digital surpass film in IQ?

Comparing 35mm DSLR with film 2005 is a good answer. My D200 was plainly superior to my FM2n with Kodachrome 64 with the same lenses (55mm f2.8 Micro was my most used).

Colleagues with Canon of the same vintage also got much "better" prints than using film.

So the simple answer to when is "about 2005".

I know you can dissect this much more, but for the sort of camera most of us think of for the sort of output we go in for, looking at the whole image, 2005 remains, for me, a good answer.
