For me it's down to cost. If you're shooting digi for stock sales, most libraries are demanding bigger & bigger file sizes, that only the latest (and most expensive) full frame digi SLR's can achieve. When I can fulfill that demand with my reliable battery free s/h Rolleiflex, costing a fraction of the latest digi wonder, then what's the point of investing serious money into a digital outfit?
To add to the argument, fees from stock sales have taken an almighty tumble over the past couple of years, and may even dry up altogether because magazines etc., are prepared to use pics. from people's i-phones providing they're free.
