I found this article very interesting: http://www.clarkvision.com/imagedetail/ ... mary1.html
There is also a lot more on Clarke's site.
For the technically inclined (OK, I'm guilty as charged!) this site is a huge resource. I guess few of us buy high end film cameras any more but there is a lot on that site to help inform DSLR and lens buying decisions.
There is a link from Roger Clark's site to another site which compares the performance of a 35mm camera, a Hasselblad 503CW medium format (6 x 6 cm) camera and a DSLR with a full frame sensor. I would have expected the Hasselblad to win hands down. Have a look at the results here

I suggested that the Hasselblad was so beautiful "I would want to place it in its own display cabinet with suitable accent lighting rather than get my fingerprints all over it!" If you are fortunate enough to own a Canon 5D (or equivalent) perhaps the Hasselblad should be retired to the display cabinet for other reasons.
I wonder how a modern cropped sensor DSLR would have fared in that shoot-out?
