There are web resources that have done the comparisson. I can recommend one here:http://www.largeformatphotography.info/scan-comparison/
However, from my own experience, it seems that the v700 can get very close to the resolution of a 2000spi drum scan (for BW negatives.. and I bet for colour negatives as well...) if the v700 scanning process is optimised.
