The only objective, meaningful comparison here 
is -- maybe -- the sharpness.

Even here it's quite possible that a small 
difference in tonality, in just the right 
place, could account for the apparent difference 
in sharpness of the close-up views.

In any case, since I'm still hanging in with 
the filmscanner that Lawrence just ditched, 
it's a relief to see that the 8000 is well 
matched to the LS-120, at least as far as 
this comparison goes.
