Michel, I have a 2200. I am not familiar with the R800 but I think if your main concern is digital negatives for contacting and such, you need real tight dot/dither pattern, as B&W (matermarism?) will not affect you much, and you can concentrate on getting great negatives without fussing on anything but great negatives. Please report back you deision and findings. That said I think the R800 will be a great choice.
