Nikon manufactures items in batches, depending on current stock and anticipated demand. It could be more sinister. While Nikon lists the LS-9000 as their only film scanner, they could be selling down inventory with no plans to make more.
LSD-9000's are available, mostly at auction, but at a premium. Expect to pay about double the list price. If you want one, don't wait. That's the way it is with film products.
