I'm sure I did read some adverse comments on the performance of the FS4000 in 
shadows but it may well have been caused by FilmGet.  As ever, poor software can
cripple a good scanner: from memory, some bugs in the Insight software when the
SS4000 was first released caused focus problems and the impression of noise 
where none existed.  Polaroid quickly fixed these and the scanner was 

So I'll happily reserve judgement on the FS4000 and be glad for comments from 
the any
users.  The only negative aspect of it which I know for certain is that it does 
a separate
pass to get the IR data so that might cause registration issues that the Nikon 
wouldn't have.
