Yeah, the Epson's problematic at best. I put up crops from the Epson


You'll notice that the 100% crops at 2400, 3200, 4800 and 6400 dpi
look almost identical. I have a hard time believing that the Epson
really resolves more than about 2000 dpi, despite its claim to
resolve 6400 dpi. A more interesting comparison, if someone were to
do scans strictly for the purposes of comparison, would be the Epson
against a Nikon or Minolta film scanner. I'd actually find it pretty
interesting to see how the Epson and a Nikon equipped with Aztek's
Nikon wet mount holder would compare. Just to see where the juice is
in the consumer market. Of course, that's still comparing a $2000
film scanner to a $500 flatbed.
