The Reflecta RPS 7200 does it for me - but I have no idea whether it is better than the plustek.
It does deliver hi-res scans, and can do a full roll automatically.

I don't get this. The Leica is made of brass, the Zeiss of aluminum. That makes the Leica a lot heavier, but not more rugged.

I usually carry TX 400, and if I go out at night, then I push it to 800 or 1600. No problems with a 1.5 or 2.0 lens.
The only problem is if you have a half-roll you need to get out of the camera.
