Re: filmscanners: Epson proofing

Not to prolong this OT discussion which our much respected moderator 
started ;-)...

But I wanted to correct one thing.  The Stylus 5000 with RIP is now 
selling in the US for $6500-7500.  Of course, my car, which I've used 
for 13 years now, cost 1/3rd of that, and the "ink" it uses is a lot 
cheaper too ;-)
