        If multiple-sampling is important to you ... 
and for the Nikons I would suggest that it should be 
... you might want to lean towards the LS-4000 (or 
possibly a used LS-2000, which is as good as the IV 
in every respect) ... both the 2000 & 4000 offer 
multiple-sampling without multiple passes.  That is, 
when Vuescan asked my LS-2000 for a 2nd pass 
(long-exposure option, not multiple pass), the 
registration was poor.  Perfect registration will of 
course vary from scanner to scanner, but I believe 
you should accept it will change over time.
