Hi. I am just getting used to my Coolscan IV, and would like to start printing with an Epson printer. Before I plunk down the cash, what is the major difference between these two? Do they both produce the same quality output? Would I be better served to save some money and go with the 820, or does the 890 justify the extra cost. To give a little background, all I want to do is print up to 8x10. I plan on picking my best images (colour and black and white), and desire to produce a fine quality print. Archival quality is not a primary concern at this point, but overall print quality is the #1 concern. I just don't want to spend more money than I really need to at this point. Perhaps I can justify it in the future, but not right now. Thanks for any advice / input. ciao.
