Nikon Coolscan update

Update: RobertWhite lists the Coolscan 9000 ED as discontinued.

In response to the numerous questions I received from readers about the Nikon Coolscan series in the past few months:

  • In their recent newsletter Grays of Westminster wrote: "Most Nikon Coolscans have been discontinued"
  • Nikon Germany lists the Coolscan IV, V, 4000 and 5000 in their archive section - they do not have any scanner listed as a current model.
  • Nikon Japan lists all but the Coolscan 9000 ED model as discontinued.
  • Nikon USA still lists the Coolscan 9000 ED as a current model.
  • None of the major retailers currently has any Coolscan products in stock (B&H, Adorama, Amazon has some in stock with 1-2 months shipping estimate):

The future of the Coolscan line is not clear - maybe, just like the Nikon SLR film cameras, the 9000 model will be the last version and Nikon will continue to make it in limited quantities. I have not received a single hint about a potential new Coolscan products.
