Scanner technology is dead in the water, so much so that I'd not bother now with anything Epson or other surviving makers crank out in. Demand has stalled for scanners, so it's little wonder no one's rolled out any significant upgrades in years. I like film, still shoot lots of 35mm and have resumed shooting 120 B&W. Processing is no problem but pro labs in my area no longer affordably scan film. 24mp+ DSLRs are quick and capable. I'll pop for drum scans when needed. Welcome to 2016.
