    I am all too new at this printing stuff, so, If any of you guys have used both, is there any difference in terms of detail and tonal range? Which would be better? Of course, assuming same paper and drum scans for the lightjet.

    I can't answer the question and in fact I'm so ignorant that I don't really know what 'lightjet' is. However, if you've got access to a darkroom and if lightjet is a send out lab thing, this could be a fun project to compare the two. These sorts of comparisons are often subjective and so will benefit from your own perception.

    Will close this since it's asked at DPUG.
