Not at all. $2500 for 47mp that gives much better image quality than any of the currently available dedicated scanners under $10K. Much quicker to use. Much better software. Works seamlessly with whatever you may have.
And it can also be used as a kamera.
I wouldn't buy the SL2 as a dedicated scanner because I need a 1:1 macro lens with AF. AF is key as it focuses on the film grain (in live view) in a second. I don't think there are any such lenses available that can be used in such a way with the SL series. Manual focus - yes - but not AF. I tried MF when I first started and it took me forever to get focus as I kept on making adjustments.
