I second the motion. We have a CIS for sale for the 2000P, in fact 
we've had it for about a month, but it was only yesterday that we put 
it on the web site. I just kept thinking: "why? why pay twice as much 
for a 2000P, which is slower and has larger dots, when you can get a 
1270 and use a CIS in that?"

Despite the problems with metamerism and Epson's inks it's my opinion 
that you still won't get close to Epson's color with 3rd party inks.

If you want a CIS and 3rd party inks, get a 980, the improvement in 
speed for the C80 isn't worth the hassle, or waiting for someone to 
make a CIS for it.

On the other hand: If you want the new features of the C80, get one. 
I'm positive eventually there will be a CIS for it. If you want inks, 
buy the 10000's pigmented cartridges, they have 500ml in each of them!
