I was also working for print media and I can recommend you a Microtek
Scanmaker 4 with the professional Scan-Software Silverfast and sometimes
with an IT8-Calibration-Set. It has 600dpi and I think a dynamic range of
D3.4. It's an older model, but it's still a great Prepress-scanner. You will
probably find a store, selling it. A cheaper model is the heidelberg
Linoscan 1400, coming with the Linocolor lite Scan-Software.
