For some years I've been planning to scan a heap of old analog photos -- Kodachrome slides plus 35mm. color negs and a lesser number of b+w negatives -- and, maybe because I use Nikon, I've always planned to get a Nikon Super Coolscan V ED. However few years ago I bought an Epson V350 scanner and, altho' I hadn't bought it for 35mm. work, found I got pretty good results from a few Kodachromes.
Now I want to scan those old photos, in particular the 35mm. b+w negs., and I'd like to pass the results to Aperture -- maybe a hundred or two important b+w photos. But it looks like the only scanner Nikon now offers is their big expensive 9000. If this is so, should I look for a second-hand Coolscan V ED or will my old Epson V350 do as well?
It's because I've almost no experience with 35mm scans that I'm asking this question. They're for publication and while perfection's always nice, 9 out of 10 good would be okay.
