Great for Negatives, Beware of Quality Control Issues

Summary: If you buy this scanner be sure to get it from somewhere like Amazon.com that will help you return it in case you find quality issues. The first scanner I received had a spec stuck to the back of the glass that appeared in all of my scans. Canon indicated that the unit needed to be serviced and they'd be happy to send me a refurbished one - no way. I returned it to Amazon and just received another, which has 2 specs, although in less conspicuous places.
Summary: No question that the optical quality of this scanner is excellent. However, a scanner is as dependent on good software as a film camera is dependent on good film, and Canon's scanning software is third-rate. I have been using an Epson scanner for a couple of years, and the software with that device is far easier to use: it offers much better visual control over the final output and it simply more logical.
