  I suppose I was posing the question(?)  My own experimentation with an
LS-2000, Vuescan and the Kodak target implied there wasn't much difference
between scanning into EktaspaceRGB or AdobeRGB ... whereas the anticipated
gamut would have suggested otherwise.  The basis of my opinion is that I
converted AdobeRGB to Ektaspace, and for the more saturated patches there
was insignificant differences for the RGB values ... implying the RGB values
were way inside the Ektaspace gamut. (which doesn't take into account Vs's
method of converting from its own device space for my scanner)

cheerios ... shAf  :o)
