Re: filmscanners: LS 4000 depth of field issue - what about LS 30/LS 2000?

As has been mentioned, I have exactly the same problem with my LS2000 and 
others have reported the same with the LS30 which presumably uses the same 
optics.  I discuss the quantification of the problem in excruciating detail 
on  http://members.austarmetro.com.au/~julian/ls2000-focus.htm

The depth of field in the LS4000/40 as discussed by Bill and others agrees 
with what I found in the LS2000 so I think the problem is of the same order 
in both, even if the optics are different.

I have asked Mikael in a previous message to compare the two since he owns 
one of each (2000 and 4000 I think)
