[Tom Sefton] "but if a 35mm print is scanned the resulting image at a similar density would be around 6K in horizontal resolution"

Again, that's not a universally accepted figure. There is plenty of research that comes up with numbers that range from 2K to 6K, depending on grain size and whether you are talking in the absolute or after the frame has been exposed in a motion camera (lower).

[Tom Sefton] "My point is that if the 1 or 2k digital print has always been good enough then why would anyone ever film at higher than that if the human eye can't see a difference in quality in the projected print. "

There are plenty of DPs who don't.

[Tom Sefton] "Many directors still want to use this format and even higher (Nolan with Dunkirk, Tarantino with hateful eight)."

Not the norm.

[Tom Sefton] "and is doing the same in digital."

I don't deny that, but you do get to a point of diminishing returns.
