SOME film resolutions, yes, but not all.  That's a mischaracterization to
say it's marketing hype.  I have both 4000 SPI and 5080 SPI scanners, and
for some films, I do get a lot more with the 5080 scanner, and the film
still has some more to give.

"resampling" degrades the image.  You get FAR better results using a higher
resolution scan, providing there is more to get from the film.
