Could you post an example?
Yes, I think it is quite possible, with a very good lens and a very good film and a photographer capable of making best use of it.
That's me!!! That's me!! woo!! HELLO!!! :-D
Oh and ... Ermmm..... but it is.... Or are you one of those people who think an 8x10 Portra 400 shot has less resolution, colour depth, dynamic range and poorer lens quality than a D800 (or IQ180)
Oh and certain 35mm B&W can still beat a D800E hands down
