I guess Ian was evaluating the image and that is a fair assessment.
However, there are some details in the print that weigh in favour of the
DSMP.  I believe no scanner can be perfect and ones choice is always made by
weighing up how much impact the negatives have and how much they outweigh
the positives.

I believe I will be happy with the DSMP and I hope to use it with Vuescan,
which does not concern itself with image quality to the eye but more with
pulling every last detail from the scan, and it is here that the DSMP I
believe will outgun the 8000.  Photoshop is almost a must with Vuescan but
the results can be stunning.
