Getting all the detail from a negative



Some of my negatives can have over 140 lp/mm of resolved detail, and that doesn't even count the unresolved but visible (under a microscope) "overtones". I'm wondering whether any of you know of a way to capture all this in a scan. I understand that some drum scanners can go to at least 8k ppi, but does anyone do this? If so, could the adjusted file then be written to a large-format negative, or directly to a print?

Thanks for any pointers,
