RE: filmscanners: LS-2000 VS LS-40

Well, we just started using a production LS4000 on a Mac G4. I have to tell you, it is pretty cool. I am really proud of the job our folks did in working with Nikon to put Digital ROC and Digital GEM on this scanner. We just scanned in some bridal portraits. Even though we just had the film processed less than a week ago, we ran Digital ROC (and Digital GEM) on the scans. Digital ROC does an incredible job of setting the white and black points and making the color POP! The Digial GEM did a credible job of reducing the noise in the scan. We were breaking our arms patting ourselves on the back. Of course our programmers and developers have been using one for quite some time, but I've just witnessed their work second hand. This was the first time I've had to get some negatives scanned.
Needless to say, the bride was very pleased with the output as well.
All this to say, if I were choosing between a scanner with Digital ROC and Digital GEM or a scanner without it, I would choose the one with. And if I had any faded negatives (boy do  I) it would make the decision even easier.
Seeing is believing.

I'm thinking about buying either a Nikon Coolscan IV (LS-40) or a refurbished LS-2000.  Both nearly same price.  What do you think?  The current "little brother" model or the older "middle brother" model.
Thanks for any comparisons or input.  The specs are nearly identical.
