Regarding Sony's sprocket drive, no one has mentioned shuttling the 
film.  Is this an issue?  Goodness knows I've seen enough film that 
had been damaged in camera from running at high speed; and the 
steadigates to which folks are referring were designed for slow speed 
operation.  In every negative transfer session I know, high speed 
shuttling is a must.
