RE: filmscanners:minolta and med format

True and a good point that I did not mention, focusing more on the idea of
scanning medium format at maximum optical resolutionjs without focusing on

Just want to add that Minolta Dimage Scan Multi Pro also has a real 3200 PPI
resolution for 120 (MF) film, which is almost a three times improvement over
