Canon has had it for some time, I'm told. And the camera group just got
their hands on it recently where it will be marketed. Keep your eyes open
for ads. Or check their web site. That's what I'm going to do.

And I wouldn't say it beats the SuperCoolScan 2000 (the one with built-in
scratch and dust filters), but it has the same optical resolution - 2700.
More than the $8,000 Kodak scanner I use at work! :-)

And the Contrast range (?) is supposed to be 3.1 or 3.3 I believe. Whatever
that means. And 32 bit color, I think.
