I know there have been numerous comparisons in these forums but I am scared to death to buy the 2200. Not for metamerism reasons which I'm sure are not as bad as some might say.

The main reason is that I am absolutely blown away with the prints I make on my Epson 820 on Color Life paper. This is an amazing paper with beautiful colour, finish weight etc.. it will also last 27 years (see other threads on this topic) under glass. It is 300 $ CDN cheaper. It would seem that this paper is not compatible with the 2200. I'm ready to upgrade to the 1280 so that I can make 12x18 prints from the D100. The 1280 uses the same print technology as the 820.

Can any one tell me if I'm making the right choice?
