Yes on the film scans, unless you want to send them out. Depends on how valuable your time is. I still shoot film and have my processor burn a CD of scans. Those I want to want to make better I rescan at higher resolution, color correct with ColorPerfect, then import into Aperture for metatagging and further editing. I have the v500, but would buy the Canon 9900F if I were getting one today (in that price range for medium format).
