I agree with Mealers , Epson, Premium Glossy Photo paper, is excellent. Thier Matte Hvy weight is fine paper too, if the matte finish is more to your liking and needs.
Please let me know of your results. I am considering upgrading my printer as well as my camera anf the R800 is the top contender at the moment.

HMmm Ilford papers. I must look for some. Back in the dark ages of actual "DarkRoom" work, Ilford was my paper of choice.. Do they have profiles available for a variety of printers on thier website?
