That was what I decided when I first read about the 2000, but couldn’t get it.

However, I am surprised to hear that the Iris is dead. It can print a 40-inch sheet — is there an Epson that competes with that? Although my last one was 3 years ago, I was getting Iris prints from a service bureau. Beautiful velvety blacks.

Thanks — I’ll ask again if I splurge on the printer!

Thank you — very nice offer. I don’t have anything right now, but would love to do that.

Oh yeah...and other printers like Roland and Mimayki (sp??)...

>>Although my last one was 3 years ago, I was getting Iris prints from a service bureau. Beautiful velvety blacks.

I'll bet you might find that they no longer use the Iris...I had an opportunity a few years ago to see an exhibit of images printed on the Iris...beautiful stuff...

I'd be very happy to do that whenever you have something you want to print...

You know how it is. Someone somewhere was commenting on the R1800 and said Epson would be bringing out a different model based on the 2200? real soon now. If you haven't heard anything, they were guessing, I would imagine.

I've not heard anything but the 2200 is old enough (and the R1800 is NOT the 2200 replacement) that it wouldn't surprise me if they did offer a new printer...

That said, I don't think it will be this year as they usually introduce new printers in the spring...

So far, only one user on the Photography forum has it, but likes it. I'll watch for a couple of months, at least until I get over sticker shock with taxes<G> But it sounds good.

Kathleen,

I got a 2200 about a year ago and I've been very pleased with it. I used the Epson network adapter and use it for photos and 11×17 prints. It takes up a lot of room and doesn't have PostScript, but it seemed like a good value.
