The opportunities for genuine improvements that I see include the following:
1) increases in the ISO sensitivity range
2) any opportunity to get the auto focus to work
in lower light ranges.
3) find a way to deal with excessively contrasty
scenes ( i.e. bright sunlight and deep shadows).
It's a bit subjective on my part but I get the feeling that the digital perhaps deals with extremes in contrast less well than film.
It's not too hard to take a zebra photo with my digital cameras where the sunlit areas are burned out and white, and the shadows are black and lack detail as well and if the photo is taken where
the sun is spilling through holes in foilage, the photo ends up looking like a macro shot of the back of a barred rock chicken.
