Although I doubt it's as quite as good as a Leaf (never used one), the
Agfa T-2500 is also excellent, about $5K, and in overall terms it may
be the best 35 to 4x5 film scanner under the Flextight Precision on
the current market. A lot of folks like the UMAX 3000, but I don't
like the fact film cannot be air mounted with this unit. But if you
need 35-4x5, and are on a budget, these are the three to consider IMO.

That sums it up nicley.
