Good shots from prints are relatively easy, as long as you have a good lens like your Nikon Macro 55, a classic. I find the 50mm Canon Macro to work well also.

So far, however, the Olympus E series DSLRs seem to be the only ones using beam splitters instead of mirrors. So they are the only ones that allow previewing on an LCD (or TV), with comfort, without having to bend up and down all day photographing from many different size books and prints.

On reproduction of present slides, I'm wondering about shooting them over a light table with a DSLR and a good macro lens. If the results could be well enough, it certainly would be a whole lot faster than scanning the slides individually. Any thoughts on this?
