Actually 11x17 is a very good match for 35mm (10.76" x 16.38" on my EX, ratio
1.52:1).  Epson's heavy-weight matte paper only comes in A3 (11.7 x 16.5),
which isn't quite so good--but if you cut it in half, 8.25 x 11.7 is closer to 35mm
proportions than 8.5 x 11.  I think you can get Photo Paper in A3 also, although
I can't find my list at the moment.
