A3 scanner choice
For work I occasionally need to scan some images from books/photographs that we will be used in a magazine. It's nothing high-end or critical.
I would like to make the jump to A3 to be able to fit the larger originals. I assume most scanners will be sufficient quality, but I'm really not sure what to choose as I do not know the accompanying software (and it has to work well under OS X).
I must be able to scan 16-bit, and with fairly accurate color without annoying auto-adjustments and clipping (I've encountered this in old/cheap scanners).
I don't want to spend an hour in Photoshop trying to correct the scan.
What A3 scanners would you people recommend (that doesn't cost a fortune?).
600 or 1200 ppi might be enough.
Here's a list of some scanners available in a webshop we use often (Norwegian).
I hear Epson is good, but how about Plustek, Xerox and Microtek? Anyone tried their scanners?

Re: A3 scanner choice
I have used my 4900 for years.
I'm looking for a new one also. My 4900 still works great. I 'm looking for one that does slides now.
A full list:
