Ian, I would be asking these earnest folk - do they actually *use* them for
that purpose, and are they (at least) amateur photographers?  :-)

I would be very leery of specifications and marketing hype.  May I quote
from a currently running ad from Canon, about their D2400UF..a flatbed with
a transparency adapter..

'get virtually DRUM SCANNER QUALITY, for an unbelievable price.'
'professional quality scanning is now within the reach of the small
professional studio'
'six-line hyper CCD also delivers an Optical Density of 3.3, a standard by
which desktop drum scanners are judged'

I've seen reviews and results from the D2400UF, and suffice to say I am not
running out to buy this 'drum-scanner equivalent'...!!!

Maybe I'm just too cynical in my old age.. Sigh. :)
