I have been following this LS4000 sharpness issue with a lot of interest,
because the real question for me, is how will the LS8000 compare with the
SS120. Considering that a 6X9 frame is so much larger than a 35mm, I wonder
whether the LS8000 will have a major problem getting the entire frame in
focus. Any guesses? (Since guesses is all we have for now, until someone can
compare an LS8000 to a SS120).
