I bought an Epson 4990 refurb for $279 a month or two ago. It does everything that I think you would want a scanner to do. Reasonably fast once you get the hang of things; PLENTY of resolution for what you want; comes with film and/or neg holders in four sizes; the software is highly intuitive; offers digital ICE and all that.
You'd enjoy it - or one similar - for what you wnat to do.
