Hello Mikael,

Perhaps I spoke too soon, but you haven't indicated (anywhere I've
seen at least) if this is a problem on average examples or those only
more curved than usual.  Fresh E-6 out of the lab I normally use is
quite flat.

Personally, I would much rather see a "hi-rez" scanner optimized for
flat than curved.  Increasing DOF may well mean less resolution at the
plane of critical focus.  In general, one doesn't expect higher
resolution devices, analog or digital, to be more kind to film going
out of focal plane, it usually works the other way round.  As you
noted yourself, a less expensive scanner is better in this regard.
