Thanks"
I got much the same information from using their "Contact" button. I did get a f/u offering a reconditioned OF 120 for $1,400. I wonder if the PRO will ever happen.

I wish Nikon would just step in and show again how it's done. I'd be on a Coolscan 8500 in a heartbeat.

They don't care. I had hope for the film digitizer mode on the D850, but that was seriously half baked. And then weirdly when they introduced the Z6/7 cameras, they don't even have that option.

Indeed...

It was kinda sad. Saved to get this scanner and eventually couldn't find it anywhere. For the time being, I'm using an Epson V600 that meets my current medium format needs.

I got a 35mm Plustek scanner and it works great by the way.

In this case, no one can find or buy the current plustek. Still, they did a horrible job here, but not the osborne effect.

They stopped making the old, announced the new and canít deliver. Pretty close. Anyway, they have other products and I imagine the 120 will not make or break them.

Iíll continue with my v700 and hope someday theyíll deliver.

Well, last time after the introduction of the OF120 I had to wait for about 2 years until it was available. Let us asume it will now take 1 year that would indicate delivery in the autumn of this year.
