The Coolscans outputting decent, if not perfect results but there seem to be largish variations in the focus.

I read online the Scanners DOF is about 1mm, and I would have thought that was plenty.

It seems to me though that frequently the edge (or centre) is OOF.

I think the problem is located either in;

1. The general lack of flatness in some of my old Kodak mounted slides.

or

2. Inconsistent AF or DOF of the scanner, I might have screwed the thing up messing with 'manual focus adjustment'.

I've learned how to move the focus point (it's 'control' click on the AF icon), but it doesnt seem to help much.
