This may well be the case for a reasonable compact camera with a zoom
lens, and normal colour print film processed in the the local overnight
photo shop (actually, I think 6Mpixels is better than that...). I also
think that a top-end fixed focal length lens, fine grain film, and
careful processing/printing will be a lot better than that.
