 Saw both new Epsons demonstrated at APIS. The 1800 makes excellent color prints and the 2400 did beautiful B/W. Going to keep my 2200 for some time. To eliminate the pizza wheel marks on the 2200, lift the metal bar with the pizza wheels with your right hand (1/8") and with your left little finger, press down on the small white wheel on the left side. It will snap down and hold the pizza wheels off the OHP film.
