I've been scanning medium format with my Epson V700. This time I got a light table and used my Nikon D600 with a 90mm Tamron macro lens.

The camera copying is certainly sharper but it seems the flatbed has more tonality this is with slide film. Your thoughts?

I find that to generally be the case ... but you can probably minimize the difference by shooting RAW and working the image in PP.

I have also used labs in the past for scanning ie a Hasselblad Imacon scanner. Overall that's the best I have tried from all 3 methods.

Yeah, an Imacon would be nice to have.
