Isn't it so that the reason for medium format film is lost when scans have inadequate resolution?

I send 120 film out for 2100 dpi scans, so that the micro contrast in small detail is not entirely lost.

The modulation transfer function is nonlinear when it is multiplied to more than one stage of reduced resolution, even including the final viewing of a print by eye. Micro contrast is a casualty of the process, even when the final pixels are too small to detect by eye.
