Quality from scanning and printing slides?
I understand there's no way to directly make prints from slides now, so we have to scan the slides and send the files for printing.
Which means we're using the computer's color space for processing.
What I'm interested in knowing is, will the prints retain the same vibrancy as the original slide? I don't think so, since we're limited to sRGB color space. So does this mean the only way to retain the vibrancy is to just display it from a projector?

Naturally a scanned slide will not be exactly like a projected one, but if done using a good scanner (I use a Nikon Coolscan 4) the result is not too bad. The image below was scanned from a Fujichrome slide:
