I will add that summary to my blog piece.
Dust was just not an issue because, I think, I shook the slides vigorously and shot them with compressed air in the tray. Seemed to work.
Warp: That is why I used such as closed aperture as to get a deeper depth of field. Again, seemed to work.
Regarding loss of potential detail: Yes, whenever you crop, you lose. My 5D Mk II is a pretty high pixel count sensor so again, it seemed to work well. I do wish I had another lens such as a real macro lens that probably would have decreased the amount I had to crop.
