    Hi

    the scanner i got is my first Nikon product (*horrors*!), the CoolScan IV ED (also known as the LS40).

    first impressions are not bad! didn't attempt to calibrate, didn't attempt to optimise anything yet, and the scans are coming out good (mounted slides). comes out a bit under to my eyes, but otherwise sharp and colors are right. (u dun get weird color casts)

    software is clunky though - Nikon really needs someone to teach them how to design the UI for their software applications (then again, so does Canon! look at the horrible image browser!)

    Yeah! Nikon scanners works best with Nikon glass and cameras. They are optimised for each other. If you find that results are not quite right, try using a Nikon lens (as opposed to some overpriced German ones )

    A Spyder will solve your problem. Your few years old 15" CRT isn't going to cut it. CRT monitors age over time, affecting colour. I highly recommend the Eizo L565 17" LCD. Zapp can attest to that.

    Why stop @ after acquiring a film scanner? Spend another $2k on a spyder and L565!
