Bingo. That was my point.

I don't know if any of these companies 
give much of a hoot about their film-scanner 
customers.  Cheap flatbeds, FAX machines, and 
3-in-1s (printer/scanner/copiers) present a 
much larger market, with much less demanding 
users.

I'd be curious to know, among veteran film-
scanner users, whether there's any brand 
loyalty at all.  Anybody out there buy the 
same brand twice?
