    Oh man, that sounds like a complicated question. I'm sure there will be lots of comments. To start, would you mean positive or negative film, which brand of film, 35mm, medium or large format film... From what I have read, and it is by no means exhaustive, film still outpaces digital in dynamic range. But, I'm sure, it depends...

    Thanks for the replies. I was talking about 35mm film either positive or negative. Brand of film: black & white Ilford, color negative Fujifilm and Agfa.
    Comments are welcome!
