But for an accurate analogy (at least in my mind), take a look at the Canon D30 and the D60. I do not beleive Canon has changed pricing on the D30 yet. So, the D60's MSRP is $2199, while the D30's stays at $2999. Now, I actually find some advanatges with the D30 in that it produces a 3MB RAW file where as the D60's is 7MB. For me that's a HUGE difference because it more doubles my storage card requirements yet I won't benefit that much from the increased resolution as print sells requirements rarely exceed 8x10 inches. However, does the D30's lack make it worth more? This is the same issue with the 5500 vs. the 7600. >> I agree that the 7600 makes the 5500 far less often the best choice but still, the 5500 and 7600 are designed for different uses. I think Epson may have a hard time selling a $3500 5600 printer but the smaller printer may be ideal for many people. I wouold consider a $3000 Photo 5600 over the 7600 if it were faster - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
