Adorama and B&H have both dropped their prices on the Canon FS4000US
35mm film scanner. The LS4000 price has not (yet?) moved. I have
not been able to find any "new news" on the Minolta 5400 dpi 35mm
film scanner, which is supposedly going to be out next month.
Given that the new Minolta scanner is the obvious logical reason
for knocking down prices on the older "merely" 4000 dpi scanners,
I wonder why the Canon price has dropped now, but not the Nikon.
That price delta ($700ish vs $1150ish) is also getting to the point
where it is tempting to buy the Canon, even if its construction
and speed may not be as good as the Nikon. :-)
