Well I can agree with what Sandy says but that was not quite my point. I put it poorly. So to explain another way.
If I have a very fine grain film where even clumps cannot be resolved by the scanner and in fact the resolution on the film is totally determined by the film, then is there some kind of advantage in scanning beyond the resolution imposed by the taking lens? The advantage being this kind of elusive "quality" that Lenny mentions about very high resolution scans.
