Hi,

I wanted to ask anyone if they had any experience with either
Epson Perfection V850 Pro
or
Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai

I wanted to get one for my 35mm negatives. but not sure which would give me the best scans?

I guess if I were to only ever scan 33mm negatives, the Plustek might be the right choice. BUT who knows what the future holds?

Having said that, if the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai would give better scans than the Epson Perfection V850 Pro, I would go for the Plustek.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance/

I have a 850 Pro, because I also scan 120 and 4x5. I was considering a better option for 135 and now use the 850 for "preview scans" for the catalog. Those I want to print get "rescanned" with my DSLR and a macro lens.
