Hi Neal, It sounds to me like your question is very simply, which scanner will produce the best color reproduction of a slide. You don't seem to be too concerned about extra resolution, and let's face it the FS 2710 isn't likely that much less a scanner in those terms than the Nikon at 2900 dpi. I can't answer, since I have neither and haven't seen a comparison, but I do know of at least one person who has a Canon FS4000 and is looking for more in terms of dynamic range, shadow detail and some excessive grain when printing. The Nikon has the known problems, low DOF, amplified defects before use of dICE. It also seems that dICE is more effective than Canon's F.A.R.E., from what I've been told. If you want to correspond with someone who has a FS4000 and might not be on this list (I'm not sure) email me privately. Oh, yes, on other thing, have you tried the "long" or "Slow" scan rather than the multi-scan in Vuescan? It improves the results in the shadows with the Minolta Dual II, where the multiscan does almost nothing.
