It is one of the frustrations of digital vs K25. I can't get the scanner to do it justice. What it looks like on the light box and what it looks like in 32bit digitalized Jpeg compressed form are two different things.
Some of the film rolls also seem to be better than others. They quit making it in 2002 and I'm picking up "frozen" film off ebay. I know that once it is processed it is supposed to be archival forever. I'm just not sure of what degrades first as the unprocessed film ages. Even in still factory sealed blocks there seems to be some roll to roll variation. (Couldn't be me. Nahhh.)
I've also noticed that with my 35mm macro I've got great edge to edge sharpness but sometimes some fuzziness in the center. I'm going to play with it this weekend to see if I can figure that one out. I don't know if it is the extension tube (Sea&Sea), the lens, or me.
