Scuttlebut at Camera Arts mag is that the Microtek does NOT
come anywhere near its claimed Dmax (or maybe it does, only
the Dmin is like 2.0 <g>)

The Polaroids are excellent scanners, but I don't think the
lantern slides would fit (I assume they are glass plate).
Otherwise, David's offer sounds truly generous!

(Maybe a Polaroid for my next film scanner?)
