i need to buy something for to print positives. i understand the epson 3000 has been an industry standard for a long time, but i'm worried about buying one used, and how long supplies will be available, and does it print 17 x 22? or some smaller image size (current ebay auctions say both 17 x 22 and 13 x 18 max image size)? i thought about buying a 1520 until someone told me both: they thought it was out of production, and it only prints 13 x 18. then i was going to buy a 1280 but they can't get one and they think IT's going out of production. i can't really afford a 7600, nor do i really have room for it, but if i have to go to the new 4000 to get a decent print size, maybe i should just drop the extra $1100 and get a 7600. epson is tearing me apart.
