Re: +1 on printer calibration

Printer calibration is probably the biggest hitter, all things being equal.

The biggest improvement to my prints was after having a custom printer profile created for my printer/paper/ink and printing using Qimage.

Talking about at base ISO, I got really nice 11X14 prints from my E1 at 5MP. I honestly can't see any real difference at this size (again at base ISO) between my D200 and my D7000. Lens IQ, the type of printer/software etc make more difference at this print size than sensor MP once you get past 10-12MP.

I would suggest to the OP, instead of buying a new camera for $3000 to have costco print the results,

Costco provides profiles from Dry Creek to use with some of their printers.

spend that money on a really nice printer, have a custom profile made for it and see a MUCH larger improvement in print quality.
