    I disagree, Fuji E-6 films scan much cleaner and with less noise signal issues than kodak C-41 films, for me at least.

    It introduces other variables to the process depending on the skills of the person operating the scanner because as far as I understand it the quality of the scanning equipment and the skills of the operator is just as important to the outcome as in traditional darkroom prints.

    Scanning for print is the specialisation being overlooked. People will get "good" results with desktop scanners from E6, but they will not match drum scanners and their colourimetrics matrices for end-stage printing — there are scant few variables to worry about when the lab does everything from start to finish; the best of the best prints have a pretty price tag attached as opposed to using files supplied by users which usually require additioinal work at-cost by the lab and quite often can result in the photographer being dissatisfied with the result — which is his fault, not the lab's!
