Thoughts on the perfect scan - is it that important?

Funny you mention those

Photo labs who use more expensive scanners (e'.g. Frontier, Noritsu) have a Portra "look" that is a little better and relatively consistent across labs and scanners.

Heh... I actually tried to buy a Noritsu LS-600 scanner. Found a few within driving distance on eBay and Craigslist. The crazy thing is none of the owners had Noritsu software capable of running on Windows 10, so in addition of $3K for a used scanner you'll have to drop another $2K for a software to use it. And even then, some Noritsu LS-600 owners claim that DSLR scanning gives them more dynamic range. Unbelievable...
