good thoughts, thanks. even if e-6 is dying im gonna enjoy it while i can. but i crave something other than a light table to view my good pix. i have a 35mm projector so i can only imagine what a larger slide would look like. i guess my other option is to get a MF scanner and use a hybrid workflow like i do for 35mm slides (i print B&W the old fashion way). now scanners, thats another can of worms
