Theres a couple of issues with the above scanner. Firstly its only roll film and idealy I need to also cover sheet film. Scanning even a 6x6 neg is slow.......abou 12 mins. I worry about the Brisbane climate and fungus problems with the lens/ccd. And I would need to dedicate a legacy Mac for the scsi Side of things. It's also limited to 3200 dpi which is modest .. .... But probably superior to Japanes flatbed scanners boasting 4000 dpi? And if there are functional issues I'm sure a grand will disappear quickly for service.
$1500 plus is still good money and while the seller seems honest it may be better to hang out for a later model. Out of interest what format does the Flextight 3 cover?
