I only have a few rolls of 120, that's our wedding photos. I got a V550, which was a total bargain at $160. I'm quite happy with the results.

I usually use a Minolta Scan Elite 5400 for 35mm negs, the V550 isn't bad, maybe 80% of the quality I could get from the Minolta, if I scan a 35mm new with it. For a 6x7 neg I get a reasonable 60Mpix image out of.

It looks very soft! Something is funky here!

The image went through several steps, each one could have contributed to the softness. It's not only the scanning that could have been the problem.

Here's my example photo:
