That shouldn't be ..as nice as the 2450 is, and I have seen some good scans from it...it is not a film scanner. What size prints are you making? If they are only 11X14 or so the D60 will appear better because you are not enlarging to the point where it suddenly falls off in quality. I can't speak for the color quality as that is controlled by you're vision in software, type of film, etc. How much sharpening to you apply?
