Default Scan to print

Well, it seems I've finally decided to buy an Epson Stylus Pro 4800 but it strikes me that my cheapo A4 scanner (HP scanjet 4600) isn't going to be a great deal of use in produce high-quality scans of paintings.

The reason for getting a new printer/scanner combination is for producing limited edition prints of artwork.

So I've started looking around for a new scanner. The only one I've found so far within my price range that looks suitable is the Epson Expression 10000XL.

Does anyone know anything about this scanner or whether there are others I should be considering that are, preferably, cheaper and better?

PS. I've also found the Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL on the web. It's cheaper but I had a Microtek film scanner once and swore I'd never buy another Microtek product.
