sounds correct, those hasselblods are for retro fiends and space cadets, they are so 1969 so neil stretch armstrong and buzz lightyear. and do not even get me started on that carol zeiss guy and his crummy lens.
I read that article a little while back and quite enjoyed it. It's an excellent read.
From the article:

Unfortunately you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the legion of black-plastic-dslrs-users who understands that
Mark Twain said "Everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it." Well ... everyone complains about post-processing, but no one ever does anything about it :rolleyes:
For me digital impedes creativity because I can see the results immediately. I see the LCD and I loose interest after that. Instant gratification kills it for me.
As for the creative process, I just walk around with a camera and take pictures of what interests me. I also spend a lot of time on Flickr: there are zillions of film photographers there with tons of good work. Very inspirational for me.
