I'm not sure I agree there, Dave.
The Leafscan 45 and the Imacons (both CCD) have
been around for a while.
The two new models (from Polaroid and Nikon) are
poised, IMHO, somewhere between these two very
worthy (but dated) standards.
On 35 mm, the Leaf 35 and 45 can probably
still beat either the Polaroid or Nikon.
Er, that is, if you have an hour or so to wait
(on the Leaf.)
What *is* quite significant is the price that
these new models are being offered at --
roughly 1/3 to 1/4 of the Leaf's original
price, or Imacon's current retail price.
