I've been looking for the same animal, but I'd like to have decent 120 final
scan capability as well.. I don't think it exists. The new Epson 2450 Photo
is at $400, but it's tranny capacity is just 4x9" (morons). This might
enable 35mm contact sheets in 2 scans (that'd be close), but would not work
for 120. The only solutions I've found are the Epson 1600 Pro (discontinued,
but can be found on Ebay for around $600) and the Umax Powerlook III (about
$700). Other options, such as the Umax 1100 or the Epson 1680 are more
