The last time I "scanned" film I actually just photographed it with my DSLR & found I got better results than from my flatbed scanner...you also get RAW files to work with.  You certainly get better than 2000 x 3000 pixel scans if you're careful.

I agree. A good macro lens on a good sensor (about 16 megapixels upward) will give better results than a scanner.

Stop the lens down to f/8 or f/11 - any further and diffraction sets in.
