Nikon vs Minolta


Let me run this up the pole again. Have a coolscan 5000 on order. Can change to Minolta 5400--no problem. Issue is B&W photography. Many have opinions regarding scanning and color photography, in which case the Minolta/Nikon 5000 is not so critical--or at least it seems. However, is there a difference when considering B&W photography that makes one preferable to the other? Need to move on this order soon. Thoughts? Opinion? Or is this just too much damn obsessing and take pictures and enjoy!!
