    I'm trying VueScan (8.2.30) with my ScanElite 5400.
    The focus-point doesn't move even when scanning an area that doesn't
    include the pulsating focus point.
    Is this a bug in usage, scanner or software?
    Or is this the normal behaviour?
    I have tried autofocus and Scanner/Focus with the same result.

    I've used the manual-focus point + auto focus find with the Minolta software
    for the SE 5400-II on Mac 10.4: works. What I don't like is that you can't
    see what it does, and just have to watch it optimizing a graph of an unknown
    quantity. Manual and point-auto focus is IMO much better implemented in the
    Silverfast software. It shows a high-res before and after focus region: a bit
    slow but works well.
    VueScan yielded skewed images in my case, and after reading the authors say
    they don't like Minolta I gave up on that.
