Re: filmscanners: 35mm filmscanner choice
Here are the specs from the Nikon Data Sheets:
Coolscan IV ED: 7 elements in 4 groups with 3 ED glass elements
Coolscan 4000 ED: 7 elements in 4 groups with 3 ED glass elements
Coolscan 8000 ED: 14 elements in 6 groups with 6 ED glass elements
So it is possible that the Coolscan IV ED and the Coolscan 4000 ED, both
35mm scanners share the same lens, but the Coolscan 8000 which is a medium
format scanner does not. Not too surprising.
