Somehow, I doubt it. From what I've heard, this
is another over-hyped flatbed scanner, like the
Epson 16x0 series, but with a bit more spec-inflation.
The only flatbed scanner I've seen that delivers
close to 2500 dpi is the Agfa 2500. The Umax
Powerlook 3000 claims 3048 dpi, but I've been
unimpressed with its scans of my 645 negatives.
