Very happy with my Nikon 8000. Once you tune Vuescan to batch scan your negatives, you'll be VERY happy. Great and not-as-dated piece of hardware as you'd think. Mine has an after market brass door to solve one of the niggling design problems. Give it another 10 years, and who knows what folks will figure out how to do with this.
