I'll be getting an Elite II soon (I've been offered a good upgrade deal on my 
and I'm hoping that the individual component selection and overall quality 
is considerably better than the Scan Dual II: I've heard that the Scan Dual II
performance can very considerably between different units.  After all, the 
Elite II
brochure makes a big thing over the increased shadow detail afforded by its 16
bit output compared with 12 bit scanners (like the Scan Dual II or the old 
but that would be pointless if the additional dynamic range is drowned by noise 
marred by CCD anomalies.

My hope is that the addition of the IR channel and Firewire was all part of a
general tweaking of its components and electronics.
