Digital cameras came to me as an answer of my budget , I bought a Sony with Zeiss Vario Tessar and it took my lifes worst pictures. I dont now the answer why but digital takes away the texture from soil , foliage , sea , sky etc. I mean with texture , the irregularness , the 3d extreme details of nature. I think digital takes every little bit of details like the same with same noise , it has no compactness of curves and light plays together. It is flat and boring. My budget is two rolls per month but with Portra and Leica + Rollei , pictures fly high. I think nikon users are more tended to digital because of poor detailing , lack of contrast , horrible textures , blowed up highlights.
If you have 40 tears experience , go switch to German glass and have understand what is lack of.
