No chance. But the Epson V750 does give good results with medium format
film.

The film holder is fragile, however.

You do have to turn off the colour correction, as by default it clips the
highlights. Turning off all correction gives what looks like a very dark
scan which comes up nicely with the Levels or Curves in Photoshop (which
can be set to do auto correction without clipping highlights).
