Jessops in the u.k are doing a great deal on Epson premium glossy paper, it is half price at the moment. For 50 4x6 its £3.32 and for 50 A4 its £11.74.
I and others cannot tell the difference between prints on canon photo pro paper (which is very expensive IMO) and the epsonm premium glossy photo paper. The espson paper seems a tiny bit lighter but the colour reproduction is pretty much identical.
I went and bought myself 200 of the 4x6 which cost me £13 ( I worked out if I bought the same in canon pro paper it would be around £60), and 50 of the A4 at £11.74( which would have cost me around £35 for the equvalant canon pro paper), will be going back later to defenately stock up on such a good deal. Is kinda good too as I may be getting an R800 later so it will be useful for that too. I am so annoyed at paying near £11 for 15 sheets of canon paper, if I stock up well I might not ever have to buy the stuff again!!
Hope this helps other frustrated canon owners & might please some epson owners
