The only DSLR I'll ever need, that rings a bell. Back in the late '90s I recall Nikon's 3MP Coolpix being reviewed as "The only digital camera you will ever need".

AstroStan: I wonder if they have finally addressed the issue of clogged ink lines that has affected their printers from the $50 all-in-one to the top-of-the-line photo printers. If an Epson is not used for a few weeks then I find it is necessary to waste time and ink running out the lines. My Canon photo printer can sit idle for months without any such problem.

I've had Epsom printers from the mid '90s, and their most defining trait has been ink clogs. Every one of them, including recently a 7900, has been junked because of clogged nozzles or ink lines that nothing, not even the strongest service mode cleanings would clear. The only exception was the 3880, which was remarkably clog-resistant, proving that Epson can make such a printer if it wants to. However, because Epson printers do some things Canon printers cannot do, I bought a P7000 and live in hope.

Sean65: It's now got to the stage that it is cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace ink cartridges when they run out. Never seen such a rip off market in my life. Ink is more expensive than gold.

I have them both, and the Epson 7900 has always been just slightly better than the Canon 6400 in terms of resolution, much better with paper handling and loading with its straight through path, while the Canon has been a clog-proof workhorse. If the early reviews show Canon has finally addressed some of the paper loading issues and it is better than the 6400 in resolution, I'll buy it in a heartbeat.
