    Just thought I'd share what I found..

    http://www.microglobe.co.uk/catalog...uper-coolscan-9000ed-multiformat-film-scanner

    Most places list the Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED at £2150 approximately and the glass negative holders at £300- £400, which I know is way over what they can be bought for in the USA.

    I came across a company in London called Microglobe.

    They are selling the Coolscan for £1499 and the rotating glass holder for MF film at £199 !

    I wonder if they are grey imports? If they are, does it matter? Has anyone used Microglobe?

    I am tempted to get this scanner as I am now about to start shooting 6x7 using a Sinar roll film back on a 4x5 camera.
