Y'all remember this picture. Just a Velvia version of the black and white one I made into the blue rose. I scanned the 4x5 transparency on the drum scanner. Below it is the flatbed scan for comparison. The setup is on the bottom.

I would be very happy with that, it looks like it handles the highlights much better.

Way more noiseless shadow detail.

I notice the color is richer and perhaps more accurate.

There are a few things I notice. First, as mentioned, the colors are rich and much more accurate. Second, the image is FAR sharper. Third, as Keith mentioned, nothing is lost in the shadows on the drum scan, but a whole lot is on the conventional scan. Fourth, the subtle transitions of light, color, and contrast are much better preserved in the drum scan, i.e. the image retains much more texture. Just look at the highlit (right) side of the rose at around 6:00 or 7:00 position, just below and to the left of the central rose.
