You and I are in full agreement on this, Arthur.  I scan 35mm at 5080, and
find I see more detail than my SS4k gave me, obviously, 4k, and as my Leaf
35 does (which is also a 4k scanner).  I also find 8k drum scans I've done
of particular film for clients has given me more detail than my 5080 scans.
