I received the Epson 7900 sample prints from Meridian today and I have to admit I'm very impressed. I had him print on Epson glossy media and though the GD is there it really is slight. I'm going to scan the prints and print them with a 1280 just out of curiosity as well as a Canon I9900. The dye printers definitely have more gloss, but I'm not sure that it matters. You definitely have to look closely at the print to see the GD; it's not readily apparent. I think I'll be very happy with the 7900, I just wished I would have ordered the identical print using the Z3200. I'll probably continue to use the dye printers for the glossy work and the 7900 for everything else.
