I think the Nikon Coolscan series is the best there is. Now that the Collscan IV and Coolscan 4000 ED have been out for about 6 months or so, you might be able to find a used Coolscan III for a reasonable price.

Hard to get a Coolscan IV or especially 4000 for $300  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
The IV is about $700, the 4000 about $1200.
A Coolscan III could go for $300, maybe a store has a leftover they're selling cheap somewhere. I would not get a used scanner, you never know how many scans it has done and they do wear out eventually.

I wish I were flying
