I have judged on the basis of how close the pre-edit-scan is to original, so 
that I need not have to worry about color correction.

With Velvia 50, I get very good output; I need not have to do any color 
correction.(With Minolta s/w)
Another very scanner friendly film in Fuji Superia 200.(With Minolta s/w)

Kodak Etkachrome E200, is not very scanner friendly.(With both Minolta s/w & 
Vuescan)

Especially with Vuescan, Kodak Gold Gen 6 gave worst output(All WHITE came as 
CYAN). Output was Ok with Minolta s/w.

I am using Minolta Elite II

Thanks
Ramesh

I found Fuji Superia 100 to be the best 10/10 - Seems sharper than
Provia 100F but the quality of the colour is poorer as negs are lower
contrast so there is more 'colour noise'.
followed my Kodak Supra 100 8/10
Fuji Reala 100 7/10
Kodak Gold 100 6.5/10
Jessops 100 0/10 (Worse than Fuji Superia 400)
