It appears that the raws have taken a real dip in quality. The raws for volume 9 have been saved at really low jpeg settings, and there are tons of compression artifacts. So if anyone knows of a better quality source, I would really appreciate it.
All right the raws I have are are around 20MB in size in a zip or rar archieve. Here a sample image
You can see the compression effect as those characteristic blocks that are all over the image. There is dirt to be sure, but even that shows the low level jpeg compression artifacts. If there is a better quality source out there, it would create a much better scanlation.
