I'm about to scan a fair number of my 35mm black and white negs. A friend has offered to lend me his Coolscan LS 2000 film scanner. Would this be a better bet than scanning them on my Epson V750M? Quality of the scan is the most important consideration for me. I know that generally, dedicated film scanners are recommended for 35mm film scans, but given the the Coolscan model and age, I'm wondering whether the V750M might outperform it.

This may help http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index....rt=#entry163653 - see post no2.

I also owned the LS2000 and found it to be a very good scanner, it also uses a direct light source and very good optics. The Nikon series, and Epson V750, suffer from blooming, especially with high contrast slides, such as Velvia.
