I have a Minolta 2,800dpi scaner that's just not cutting it anymore. It doesn't have ICE, and the scans are grainy due to the interference patterns produced by the lower resolution. It also doesn't have the dynamic range for dense film.

I want to think about buying a new scanner (probably will have to be used due to budget anyway). And I need help deciding between the Minolta 5400dpi model and the Nikon VED or 4000ED models.

I shoot all types of film, including black and white, Velvia, Kodachrome, and negative film.

Is the extra resolution of the Minolta necessarily a benefit? What about other aspects of these scanners? How about operating system compatability?
