    would someone comment on the comparisons between Epson 3170, 4170 flat bed
    versus Minolta Dual Scan II or III? Let's say not that interested in
    scanning prints; only interested in scanning films. The epsons have medium
    format adapters. what about scan qualities, etc, etc?

  2. I have another recent Epson flatbed scanner that scans film, and a Nikon
    Coolscan III. I hope this is close enough to be of use to you...

    The answer is that the true film scanner is FAR better. It is sharper and
    has better dynamic range.
