Digital cannot give the same results as film? I have to disagree with that one. I recently purchased a Fuji S1 as a backup for my F5, the results I have gotten so far have really impressed me. I would even go as far to say that digital is better than film in some respects.
Here is the very first shot I ever took with the S1:

Will digital ever replace my F5? Hell no, but it sure opens up opportunities that film cannot provide. The fact that one can be creative and try new approaches to photography without blowing $$$ on film is great. You also get instant results and don't have to fork over even more $$$ for processing.
