    Hi everyone, hope you are having a Happy New Year.

    I was looking to take advantage of Adorama's offer of free shipping on the
    Minolta Scan Dual III film scanner, but when I checked back, it was no
    longer listed. I don't mean out of stock, I mean not listed at all. Went
    to 17th Street Photo, backordered. Even called locally (well, somewhat
    locally) Hunt's Camera in Melrose; they are waiting for a shipment that was
    supposed to be delivered on Monday.

    Has anyone heard anything about this scanner being discontinued? I ask only
    because I was too slow to get a Nikon CoolScan IV; I noticed the rebate
    offered, but all stores were backordered. Then just out of stock, and
    finally the listing was removed. B/H doesn't even list Nikon film scanners.
    Where is the CoolScan V? The release was announced in October if I am not
    mistaken; or was that more vaporware?

    Any info would be appreciated; maybe some new toys will be announced in Feb?
    (When is that show exactly by the way?)

    Thanks again everyone, and have a great holiday.

    I think it is only temporary after-xmas shortage. I had to wait
    for mine for 3 weeks. Actually just now I checked, BHPhoto
    has it in stock.
