I don't think the preference for film is a mystery; the same issue raises itself in regards to movies as well. Ultimately digital images simply do not replicate the manner in which we perceive. Yes, some cameras can come damn close and yes some cameras look phenomenal regardless. But the digital image does not have the 'natural' quality of analog because analog more accurately portrays how humans perceive.
If you're getting back into developing, I think you should sell most of your equipment (Quantaray??? Really?) and get a used Hassie 500C or a Mamiya 645. Remember it's the lenses that are important. They're now available for well under $1K with a lens. You want to take great photos and enlarge. Well, do it right.Just searching a few minutes, I found this! With 3 lenses.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mamiya-m645-Medium-Format-Camera-3-Lens-Awesome-System-Fussy-Mint-Condition-/222585046537?hash=item33d31a4609:g:BMQAAOSwKRJZbSP4
And if you DO want Hassy, contact me. I have several from my old wedding days.
I'm also thinking of just doing a D5500.... My D5100 is a POS. It gets the exposure and focus right about 20% of the time.
