I tend to agree with that. I run film recorder, and in those terms, the 
"general" resolving
power of 35mm emulsions is referred to as "4K" (if the film recorder can do 
many cheaper ones claim that, but can't for various reasons, whole 'nother 

"4K" is:
4096 x 2731 true pixels (apprx. 32MB TIFF file in 24bit, double that for 48bit) 
4000ppi at 36x24mm significantly exceeds.

Of course, higher the ppi capability of the scanner, more you can crop from the 
and still hit your target optimum resolution.
