Hi, have an 'oppotunity' to buy a Nikon 9000ED scanner for almost three times what my epson v700 cost. Just bought a Rolleiflex 3.5F to try and do B&W work, and print upto 11x14, probably using Vuescan.

Now, I know there are too many other variables involved, but still, everything ELSE being equal-

will I see a significant difference ?

and

Is it worth the difference in price ?

Just a quick attempt to feed or dissipate my sudden GAS...
HELP !

I haven't used your model of the Epson & don't have experience w/the 9000 (I use the Konica Minolta Dimage Multiscan Pro for medium format, but it has similar specs to the Nikon), but I would say that even making only 11x14 prints, you will see a significant difference using the film scanner.

However, if you're not planning on making a lot of digital prints (another significant outlay of money for printer & inks + additional learning curve) or doing other digital stuff w/your scans, then it might not be worth it for you to get the 9000.

The review I saw between the Epson and a film scanner (Nikon?) concluded while there was a difference, it was very subtle. The Nikon scanner is old technology and flatbeds have been able to catch up. Since you are only making 11x14 prints, I would go for either as both would give similar results. Naturally, the Epson can scan prints.
