Wow, thanks for that URL.
I know the Tango is the best drum/high end flatbed scanner out there for
under than $100,000 so, those are simply amazing results from the 8000.
we are really moving into a new era here
I almost forgive nikon for the 6 crashes I've had today on 3.1
oh, and the banding simply is not an issue if you press 'super fine scan',
because then it disappears, though the scans get slower.
