If I display the scans at 100% resolution on my monitor, that happens to come
out to exactly the same size as a 24x36-inch enlargement.  At least on these two
images, I can't see any difference.  If there is one, it must involve details
that cannot be resolved at 53 lp/mm or above.  I don't see any differences in
distortions or aberrations.

Is there some reason why the lens in the Yashica (a Zeiss lens, remember) could
not be an extraordinarily sharp lens?
