Yes indeed different preferences is what makes the world go round
I've heard classical guitarist's say they find the tin can sound of steel string unlistenable.

However just about everybody hates banjo

I much prefer a mic, but I do understand that in certain situations the realities of environment might make it very difficult.
I wouldn't mind trying the new Zoom AC-2 being fed with my K&K Pure Mini transducer.

If I was jamming with mates through a PA I would be happy plugging in my Yamaha AC3M and even using a magnetic pickup as well through a separate channel.

If I wanted a good acoustic recording I would use my condenser mikes.

I saw Bob Dylan a week or so ago and one of his guitarists was playing (at times) what looked like a Gibson acoustic and it sounded pretty "quacky" to me so I guess for live work in bands people often use the pickup for convenience.
