I don't like Kodachrome but sometimes we must use what we are given. I spent
a few hours this evening scanning Kodachrome on an SS120 with SilverFast IT8
and found NO problem. My Nikon scanner produces the most awful results
without any encouragement from me.

Hmm, if SilverFast colour management is correctly configured you should see
in the preview exactly what you will get in Photoshop. If you are getting
something different you have a problem - most likely a screwed monitor
