Yes, I'd like see some examples.  Most of my slides are Kodachrome 64 which
is way beyond my Minolta dual (SCSI).  How does Kodachrome 64 compare with

My concern about the LS4000 is the narrow depth of field which would likely
require 2 scans on mounted slides.  Remounting slides is out of the
question.  Also, Vuescan doesn't work with the LS4000 and Mac OS so I
wouldn't be able to try Vuescan's reportedly superior dust removal.  So,
it's a trade off either way.  I'm obtaining a gray step density test slide
and a resolution test image, so I will be able to verify the performance
(I'm an electro-optics engineer).
Maybe I should look at the SS4000 again.
