    No...I process everything at Rite Aid, They don't effect softness or sharpness, Tonal range and exposure get screwed up but not sharpness. It's in the scanner bed that sharpness is lost when scanning prints, it's the glossy paper reflecting light that does it, I think. That said, It's either a slight misfocus or or the scanner or a combination of the two. I have to assume that a proper film enabled scanner would make significant difference in the results. The shots them selves look good, it's just loosing something during scanning, I am almost certian of it.

    A post I made earlier this year demonstrates the difference from scanning prints from the negitives.

    You prolly don't need a super expencive one, all you will prolly need is flatbed that is film enabled. Dedicated equipment is for dedicated use, if you are not going to use it regularly don't spend your money needlessly on a dedicated scanner. With a film enabled flatbed, satisfactory results can be had wile also serving as a normal scanner. It's up to you and your needs from here.
