You've made your aversion to LED's well know. But you must know that they
are not a consumable item, like the Leafscan bulb. It's inevitable that at
some point you'll need to buy a bulb for your scanner. I don't know where
you get them now, but in a few years the only place you'll be able to get
them will probably be ebay. On the other hand, I've never heard of and LED
array burning out. It's considered a permanent light source.
Score 1 for Nikon, 0 for Leafscan.
