I was giving the price of Silverfast for Nikon LS2000. Note that I said "in
the USA."

At Lasersoft's site
the price is $529US. For the LS 1000 is says $319US. And for the LS 20
Coolscan II they charge $199.

Nathan asked about the LS2000.

If the version for LS2000 is available somewhere for $300 US, please let me
know where. Thanks.
