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.
