I recently did a comparison between my Pentax k100d, a 6 mp DSLR, and my newly-acquired Mamiya 6. I expected the 6x6 to smoke the digicam, but it didn't and I'm wondering why. The test wasn't entirely scientific, but here are the details: Pentax k100D wi50 1.7 lens, f5.6, tripod, ISO 200 Mamiya 6 with Portra 400, 75 mm @ f8, no tripod but high shutter speed of 500. Scanned on the Nikon 9000 @2000 dpi. The test might not be entirely fair considering the scan size, film, and lack of tripod for the Mamiya, but I didn't expect such a route for detail. (Don't look at shadow detail--it was a different time of day). My local photo shop thought it was the scan technique. Any ideas?
