Medium Format Film - What Are We Chasing With New Cameras?

Shot With ca. 1948-1953 Zeiss Ikonta 521/16 Medium Format Film Camera
I read an impassioned post by Peter at "Photographs by Peter," sharing his delight with his first results on black and white medium format film in his Mamiya RZ67.
(Click Here) to read his post and see a very nice image he produced.
Peter's right, of course. These old cameras and film can produce absolutely wonderful images.
However, I'm not so negative about where we're headed now. I simply enjoy both, all of the above, etc.
That said, I don't have a digital camera that I'm sure could produce an image like the one above. Not yet. Maybe the M9 could come close.
