I'm using the same version of Nikonscan as anyone with an LS40 or LS2000,
or LS8000. What the LS30 can't do in Nikonscan 3.1 is GEM or colour
but ICE^3 should be the same. Having more bits from the A/D and higher
resolution in the newer scanners may also help with sharpness (although
there's only a tiny difference in resolution between the LS30 and LS40).
FWIW I don't use Nikonscan - I get better results faster with Vuescan.

Which is an excellent bonus - it *ought* to work well considering the price
of the scanner! :)
