I mentioned three big shops and two small ones, I work at Cinelab and we are getting a 2K/4K scanner from a company in LA. The big shops like Deluxe or Co3 will do excellent work but with no real discounts. I mentioned Cinelicious in LA as they cater to smaller jobs and film people as we do at Cinelab. I did not remember Metropolis but the Oxberry Cinescan is a very good (but slow) scanner. I know there was pixelharvest.com in LA for inexpensive 2K scans.
I think it just requires some looking around for a post house that you can work with. If the scanner is properly setup there should not be too much difference from machine to machine in a 2K scan.
