I've been looking to purchase a new scanner and I've been reading reviews for the CanoScan 5600F, 8800F and 9000F. I am leaning toward the 9000F despite its price as I often wish to do high resolution scanning.
I also need to scan a fair number of colour negatives and 35mm slides, and looking at one review (which I can't find again ) I noted that the reviewer said it took 8 minutes to scan one negative strip and that simply didn't make sense, given repeated mention of 8 second scan times, admittedly for simple tasks. This review says about a minute.
Does anybody use a 9000F for slide and negative scanning, or any Canon LED scanner in the 5,8,9 range for that matter?
