Real prints, if we're talking about dynamic range in b&w. And yes, I am 
prevented from 'endorsing' other manufacturer's digital equipment - I am 
not, however, compelled to say anything I do not believe about Olympus 
equipment, nor am I constrained in giving my honest opinion if it - and I 
don't think that anyone here could honestly suggest that I pull any punches 
when discussing the equipment. Btw, my comment about digital bw v tri-x 
applies to digital generally, and not Olympus specifically.

"The one thing I totally agree with you on, Jeffery, is the DOF problem -
