Thanks for the responses. I think I have what I need now. To answer your questions: I rarely need to print larger than 8x10 so a printer that will print up to 17" would be more than adequate. I've never used roll paper. Monochrome capability is essential (Ansel Adams is my hero-- and I have a Leica M6 that I love to shoot with b&w -- can I say that here?) Weight and size . . . well, let's just say that I'm willing to make some adjustments for the right printer. $$$? I was hoping to keep it under $1000, but I can save up a bit longer if I need to.
Thanks again, you all are great, you're wonderful, you're . . . . punctual.
