Anyone have any experience with this scanner? It's time I get of the stick and start digitizing all my old slides and prints. I'm sure the V700 will excel as a flat bed scanner for my prints, but how is it for slides and negatives? My other option is to by a lower end flatbed for the prints and a mid range slide scanner like the Plustek. If two separate scanners is the way to go, fine. But if I can accomplish both with a high end flat bed such as the Epson so much the better.

I have the V700, and found it excellent for prints, slides and negs.

I have also used drum scanners in the past, and an enormous (expensive) heidelberg flatbed scanner, and I have found the V700 comparable for my needs.

before i bought my canon 8800f i looked at the v500 and v700. i ruled the v500 out and then i decided that for the money the 8800 was the better deal of the two. friends of mine who own v700's love it, as do i with my 8800f. all in all, if your gonna shell out the cash, you cant go wrong with the v700, ive seen 12x18 prints from 35mm film scanned on it and they look beautiful, b&w too, which is even more impressive.

but yea, both scanners pick up dust spots, ill spend literally 30min-1.5 hours cleaning up ONE scan if i really want to get it perfect.
