My own feeling is ... to "enlarge clearly" to 11 x 14, you need the
entire 35mm film frame ... especially for fast films and because this
scanner will tend to enhance the grain. I have, however, seen good
results from the included GEM software, but I believe an 11 by 14
might approach "good or excellent" quality, rather than "fine". Since
you will get the scanner anyway (I cannot suggest a better one),
you'll be able to evaluate your need for another lens.
