OK, you LUGgers have done it to me again.  I just ordered the Sprintscan
from CDW, along with a SCSI-2 card.

Can someone please tell me if it comes with all I need for 35mm filmstrip
scanning, or do I need to get an accessory? Any other accessories that I
might consider for convenience, etc?  I know it does not claim the greatest
dynamic range, but does it seem to be adequate for something like Provia F?

Thanks to all for helping me deplete my bank account, against all my best
resolutions to the contrary.

I don't have direct knowledge yet, but my research and reports from those
who've been using it indicate that it's very good, especially at this price.
Lower dynamic range than the Nikon 4000, and no ICE technology for automatic
scratch and dirt removal, but for myself at least the price point over-rides
those concerns.
