Your opinion. If you ever owned a 5DMII you obviously never profiled your camera. I own and use both professionally (and yes still shoot a ton of film) and while great quality is possible with either, the II has the edge in every conceivable way.
The "soul" of an image is in the artist vision and how he/she translates that via his control of the camera, technique and printing. It is not inherent in the technology or materials. You don't buy "soul" by buying a particular camera or by buying film. I repeat-what a total unequivocal load of crap.
But that won't work, Kirk: you'd need two buckets of crap because you are dealing with two separate questions here: a (loose) Canon and film. I stand behind the film; the Canon guy can take shelter as he wishes. As with so much in life, I know what I know, and others what they think
that they know.
Looked at from that perspective, life is balanced, it works, and folks remain serene.
