You didn't mention the format so I went generic
I'll presume 35mm to the old 120 and 620 formats. You said you wanted the very best so I'm presuming price is no barrier. As well, if you use multiple formats, getting the very best means a scanner for each format. In that case, you look for such that professionals would buy for their business use. Most of these scanners aren't used by those individuals for their own photography work but to offer scanning services for sale. Of course you know that there's no such thing as a scanner that can do justice to film emulsions which capture information at the level of molecules rather than pixels. Never will a digitized image made by a scanner capture all of the information on a film frame either. With that said, I might recommend you take this to some professional photography forum rather than technology ones. I'll recommend a decent web site by a person named Ken Rockwell. You can google his name, find his site, give more details as to your goals and see if he can steer you in the right direction. Good luck.
