RE: filmscanners: Epson 2450 for MF film scanning?

The Perfection 2450 is currently listed on the Epson UK site www.epson.co.uk
and is available in the UK and France. The Epson France site (not the UK
site)has a download for the manual. My command of the French language is
poor but the diagrams show the configuration of the film/slide holder.

I have been waiting for a foothold into MF scanning and I am hoping this is
it. I have seen scans from the 1640 which look 'soft' to my eye. I am hoping
that the 'microprism' and 'micro stepper' technology has overcome this. I
wonder if the weight (spec says 5.6kg)may also help in dampening vibration.
I am struggling with my previous bad experiences at being an early adopter !

where is the info? I am using a 1640 and could use the extra resolution.
