Forget the Epson, or any other affordable flatbed, for scanning 35mm

If you haven't already, please see the reviews at my site.

The latter is the Coolscan3/LS30. Prices have dropped on these and LS2000 
recently as Nikon is introducing a new range. This should also mean lots of 
secondhand scanners at good prices as people upgrade.

Other possibles: 
Acer Scanwit 2720(cheapest filmscanner worth having)
Minolta Dimage Dualscan

And your question is perfectly welcome, this list is for all levels of 
experience :-)
