It *does* matter, Mike. I'm not a "pro" and I don't absolutely *need* either of these printers, for that matter. I've owned two Epsons, a 600 and a 700. The difference in output quality between these two is quite significant. If I went with the 3000, I'd be stepping backwards to the print quality of an Epson 600. Frankly, I'd rather not do that. If a new model will be coming out in a few months, I'll gladly wait, and find work- arounds in the meantime. As to the "corollary" with digital cameras... maybe you're right. It's why I simply won't buy one, probably not for another few years. With present technology, at my budget, it would be a huge step *down* in quality from what I can do with a Nikon FE and a film scanner. rafe b. - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
