Nikon appears to claim improved performance in these regards in their
literature, and there is now a specific Kodachrome setting, (but not
B&W?).  The problems are documented in many of the more thorough
reviews, so I don't think I'm alone here.  I'm wondering if anyone
has, or wouldn't mind, testing the difference and reporting the
result, as I have many Kodachromes to scan and print, and 'm trying to
decide between the 4000 dpi Polaroid and Nikon.
