I didn't see any comparisons with a 4000dpi scanner in the review. I was
suprised at the improvement over the Nikon at 2700dpi although that must be
an older model coolscan as the coolscan IV scans at 2900dpi. I suspect the
coolscan IV is significantly better than earlier models. The 3200 didn't
come close to matching the Flextight IMO in detail.

The review didn't really have any real world tests to see what the
density range is that the scanner can capture. That seems to me a
significant omission.

Overall a positive review but the comparisons to film scanners left a lot to
be desired.
