Default film/photo scanners

Any recommendations for a reasonably priced film/photo scanner (for both
35mm and 120 film)?

A few years ago, a bit of searching the net seemed to suggest that the
Epson V700 (now I guess V750, aka GT-X970 in Japan?) was the thing to
get -- good quality, decent price, more or less as good as you can get
without a dedicated film scanner (which seemed _much_ more expensive).

It's apparently still in production, which seems a good sign.

What's the story these days?

Looking at shows:
Epson GT-X970: ¥42,485 ($448)
Nikon coolscan 9000ED: ¥328,320 ($3,460) (ouch!)
(are there any other film scanners still in production?)
