SImilar story here, Gary.  I still have my SprintScan Plus, 
and am happy to have it on hand as a backup, as it's worth 
approximately zilch on eBay.

Truth be known, on 35 mm, you really have to look closely 
to see the improvement that the LS-8000 brings, on most 
images -- aside from ICE, that is.

What the world needs is a decent 120 film scanner with an 
honest 2700 dpi resolution, at, say, half the price of the LS-120 
or LS-8000.  I'd have bought one in a heartbeat.
