There is a 4800dpi  (4.2) 16 bit scanner on the market now.  That makes a
95MB (8 bit) tiff
file from 35mm.  There is not much more to be had after that from 35mm film.

You may never buy a scanner if you want the best to be offered in the
developers dream
scanner.

What you have mentioned I would pick the Nikon in the fact that it has ICE
cubed. ICE, ROC
and GEM. which will become very useful tools  if you want to scan a large
numbers of
images.
