  That didn't come out of my mouth ...<g>... and I do not agree.  More tonal
detail and subtlties, yes ... but if the scanner is capable of highbit
scanning, and you ask for delivery of 8bit instead of highbits, the same
tonal range is delivered.  Consider PS converting a highbit file to 8bits
... does the tonal range change because to converted?  It's the same thing.
