Nothing is perfect.
The downside of electronic images is that few will find an old shoebox in an attic in 60 years and thumb through the images of Gramma and Grampa when they were young. Find the discs they were saved on and hope someone, somewhere has the technology to open them.
Remember Bernoulli discs and the floppy disc? We still have glass plates, tintypes, B&W silver prints, carbon and pt/pd. Cared for they do last. Digital media loses information just sitting.
And the biggest problem with a print is it fades, is prone to humidity, smudges, dirt etc...
My wedding photos have faded badly. If they were digital, they would display like new.

Let's see...if you'd taken them on the digital media of twenty years ago....
What problem do you see with moving from one digital media to another?
Most people don't do it and won't. Heck, NASA in those days didn't even do it, and I'm not sure they do it yet.
