@AMnerd - competing with the big boys is not what fuels invention, take for example, Xerox. Their annual profit portfolio is a mere few percent, I think 5.7% avg. I don't know if any new product or invention would ever happen because where is the motivation?

Still way too expensive. If they want to not be obsolete in the next year they have to do auto leveling/calibration and compete on price with the big boys.
