I take your point, I just happen to think that - even at this price point -
a scanner that's sold as a "photo" model complete with a tranny hood and
film carriers should do a rather better job than the Perfection models
I don't expect them to be robust enough to scan all day and every day - I
expect to pay a very much higher price for that sort of engineering - but I
think they should produce results that are a *little* closer to their
manufacturer's hype. FWIW I haven't been much more impressed with the
Expression models from the same company.
My interest in this kind of scanner is as an economical way of scanning 5x4
at home, so I wasn't really pushing the Epsons hard, certainly not as hard
as someone would who wanted to use them for MF.
