I bought a dedicated 35mm scanner about 3 years ago since these give good resolution, good dynamic range (DMax) and have an infrared scanning channel for correcting dust & scratches (essential). I bought a Reflecta ProScan 10T


A friend of mine has the "Pacific Image" version, can't remember the model number but this is a reasonably-priced scanner that produces results that are way better than my Epson and Canon mid-range flatbed models.

Yes, that's what I concluded after looking at various reviews. The contrast range (DMax) and resolution, dust scratch removal and resolution is better using a good dedicated 35mm scanner. The Pacific Image and Reflecta scanners are identical.
