Even with five MP, I would think there would be quality lost from slides, whose resolution is far better. Having to put each slide into that frame is time consuming too (I own one similar to this). Make me a copier that one can simply dump the slides into would be far better, if the auto focus works perfectly. The auto exposure feature I suspect will be a problem too. Mine (from Brookstone) is all auto, like this one, but gives unacceptable results for most of the slides I have done. Being able to view the digital conversion before saving it would be ideal. The Ion is probably much better tho.
