[filmscanners] Scanning old Lantern Slides

I have taken on a project to scan 50 old lantern slides from a Mt McKinley
expedition in 1910. This is a not for profit organization I am going to be
working for and they don't have ton's of cash to spend on a scanner. With
that said can anyone recommend a decent flatbed scanner for scanning these
images. From looking at them I can say the most important feature would be
excellent highlight detail since a lot of shots have snow and bright sky.
The images will eventually end up being output to film also.

At the high end I have been looking at the UMAX 3000 but it may be a bit
pricey at $4300. In the midrange the Agfa T2500 looks promising at $3000. I
am a little scared to go with the Microtek ArtixScan 1100 even though
Microtek says it has 3.9 D-Max. For some reason I don't have faith in that
brand - no past experience just rumors.

What ever happened to Heidelberg or Linotype-Hell scanners. I can't find one
online retailer who sells them? And their website is a mess - can't find any
prices or dealer info for the US.

Anyway any help with this would be appreciated.
