I have never found softening on my LS2000 that was not fixable by a little
bit of USM. In fact I find the *slight* softening that does occur to be
preferable and reduces apparent grain while not reducing image sharpness
after USM at all. I think ICE is great and would never scan without it on
I am sure others will say my images aren't therefore sharp, and they might
be right, but my feeling is that the differences they notice might be more
due to differences between individual scanners than the images themselves.
