Truth be told with transparency film (or any film), it's not dulled down, not a lot is lost nor sacrificed. You can achieve a miracle with an $80,000 drum scanner and skilled operators. Or I would not be producing prints from MF at the rate of $2,000 a month. I'm very, very picky about quality. What is important though — read, critical, is correct exposure across the image. All but one of the pics posted by the OP are out of whack — and easily fixed with an instant tweak.
