Vuescan's lowest setting on dust removal doesn't seem to affect image
sharpness. ICE on my LS30 *does* affect the whole image. I suspect
that ICE "sees" the grain of the film (or rather the "apparent" grain :) as
some sort of defect and tries to correct it.
As I mentioned elsewhere, we'll have to wait and see if ICE3 has
fixed this problem.
