Most definitely vuescan.  I cannot recommend it more highly.
Been using it for over 10 years and it is the best value.

If you find a more neew recent scanner as good as that one, let us know.

Unfortunately apart from some of the top end Epsons, there is very 
little choice nowadays.
Other than something incredibly expensive like the plustek Opticfilm120 
- which is that expensive because of the crap software bundled with it.

Mine works heaps better with vuescan than with its horrible bundled 
software!
