Think of statues. You're looking to drop a couple g's on decorating your garden with a giant bronze Elk statue and you see the one you want and it's marked 25k. Ok you say, you inquire, and learn that it's not forged individually, but rather comes out a perfect forge machine and there is an inventory of about 50 waiting for other customers. Now at the same price, across the street, there is one that was done by hand by the artist selling it for the exact same price.
Which would you choose? --even if they were identical?
Now for me, I dabble in all sides. I play with hybrid workflow and diginegs, but still do plenty of darkroom work...hell I scan color slides and print on an inkjet. I think all methods are equally capable of producing amazing results, but I think my above analogy stands.
