Hi folks,

After problems with 2 separate Minolta Elite IIs (which I won't bother
repeating in this post), I'm contemplating jumping ship and going for
either for a Nikon LS-40 or a Polaroid Sprintscan 4000 (some dealers
here in the UK are still advertising it).  In my price range, these seem to
be the best 2 scanners.  (The Canon FS4000 appears to have poor
shadow performance and I've had enough of this with the Elite II.)

I'm attracted by the extra resolution, low shadow noise, good depth of
field and SCSI interface of the SS4000 (and Polaroids general customer
service) but I have found ICE invaluable at times.  Also, the SS4000 is
now quite elderly in scanner terms.  Has anyone had direct experience
of both these scanners, preferably on dense slides like Kodachrome?
