Well David - if the Frontier scans gave you what you wanted the  
discussion becomes mute. But I would rather have your coast to coast  
histograms on file. As Ansel (so they say) suggested, "the negative  
(chrome, RAW file, in other words the original) is the score, the  
print is the performance (how you interpret the score). I want as  
much information as possible in the original so I have options in the  
performance. YMMV ;-)
