Pam, you haven't been following the thread! I did a 35mm negative (Technical Pan) TEST scan, with BOTH scanners set at 1600 DPI Optical resolution, so I could see a comparison of sharpness and tonal quality at THAT resolution between the two scanners. It was just a TEST. The Canon was sharper and had more shadow detail than the flatbed at identical resolutions. I just took back the 1600, and ordered the Agfa T2500, which has 2500 OPTICAL resolution for medium format and 4x5 negatives. I'm quite sure that this will be sharp enough, even for a picky fellow like me!
