    OK. I've got a question, that might be really simple, but not sure of the answer. I've posted this in a couple places, because I'm not sure where it should go.

    What is the difference IN QUALITY between:

    1. Taking digital pictures and moving them to a computer
    2. Using slide film and scanning desired slides to a computer for post processing
    3. Using print film and having the images put directly onto a CD when they are processed (to be used for post processing)

    I know actually using a digital camera is easier, with less steps, and you can actually save the RAW files from the camera. But, I am currently on a limited budget :grumpy: and still shooting a film camera. I'm trying to decide if my next purchase should be a digital camera, or if I would be better off going with a better (longer) lens first, and temporarily sticking with the film camera. I'm trying to decide which would be the better way to go for quality. (FYI - most interested in wildlife/scenics/landscapes)
