I do not have the necessary instrumentation to measure actual resolution in a scan file. Do you know anyone who does and what they actually got? I strongly suspect those numbers are the manufacturers computations based on theoretical positioning of the scan head but ignoring all optical, electronic noise, and focus factors. That is a world of difference.

I do know that old Noritsu and Frontier scans don't come close to the resolution I get from my Minolta MultiPro with the negative sandwiched between two pieces of optical glass in the carrier.
