Gary;

Thanks for a great expanation.  I'll be getting my first results back today on
slides with the 80 mac.  All done on a copy table of flowers.  If there's 
anything
of note, I'll post it.
As for 80 mac taking better photos at infin than 90 mac! I still can't get the
thing to focus at infinity.
