to me the 900 was a true revelation for a very reasonable price, and of course, offers such as ZA 135 and so on make it a serious package. Yes, it looks a little like a zapper from a sience fiction movie but I quite like the looks, which is not a important factor, but much more so, the usability is just plain excellent which came as a big surprise to me.
IQ is truly excellent with smooth tonal transitions and very usable up to ISO800 without any doubts. Also, the fun factor is extremly high, it is just a joy to work with the zapper.
The final outputs, most important to me, even really large prints, on my Epson 11880 are excellent.
