Well, I had my second LONG conversation with the very nice gal from Epson, and she's investigating some issues I asked her about.... "does the new Epson Semi Gloss paper for the 2000 have the same (barrier) construction as the PPG paper?". If NOT, then I'd like to try it out for my commercial work with my 1270. I've mostly delivered semi gloss ("E-surface") photo prints to my customers over the years, so this may be a usable solution.... assuming the 1270 inks absorb properly, look as vivid as on PPG, and don't turn colors or fade (a tall order). Meanwhile, I am now toying with the idea of taking Epson up on their offer and swapping back my 1270 for an 1160. I am wondering if anybody out there has made an "A/B" comparison between them as far as photographic image quality goes, i.e., same picture printed on same (or very similar) paper, around the same time (before atmospherics come into play). I am thrilled with the 1270 quality, and need to know if the 1160 comes close enough. Of course then I would get a CIS and use some third party archival ink/paper combo, and maybe be able to continue on my quest for an all digital commercial photography business (at least for 8x10s and a little larger). I hope one of you heavy duty Epsonites can answer this, and help me over the edge. =Steve= Stephen M. Ravner Action Foto, Inc.
