    Excellent, thanks for the addendum--I suppose the crux is as always defining "good enough," but for my purposes the possibility of even getting close to a drum scan with off-the-shelf, dual use equipment is very attractive. (FWIW, what I was getting at with the 5x7 remark was how its aspect ratio matched-up with a 24x36 sensor--positing a "one-shot" capture, the I'm not sure you'd ever see the difference between 5x7 and 8x10, or perhaps even between 6x9 and 4x5.)

    Thanks! I've been shooting film and printing in various color and B&W darkrooms. As the last color darkroom closed in WA last year, I'm finding that I'm having to print color in LA. Which is leading me to look into digital workflows that I'm not familiar with to print on an inkjet.
