I agree with the Portra 400 recommendation. How are you planning to scan your images? This will make or break your comparison.

I will probably do the same as last time, and initially scan with a Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400. I may also use my camera setup for comparisons. I might (if I feel that it's worth it) have a couple of drum scans done.

I have this scanner and while "old technology" it is certainly excellent, if time consuming to use. One has to use manual focus on every negative individually for good results. It gives me results at very high resolutions comparable to what one can get from the popular Frontiers and Noritsus used by commercial labs.
