Canon will have the PixmaPro 9500 later this summer, a 13x19, 10-color pigment printer. Vincent at Photo-i.co.uk had a blurb when it was announced back in February: http://photo-i.co.uk/News/Feb06/Pro9500.htm
HP also is releasing a pigment printer, the B9180, an 8-color pigment printer, that sounds great as well. Vincent at photo-i again as a blurb here:http://photo-i.co.uk/News/Feb06/HP%20B9180.htm
and a video introduction here: http://photo-i.co.uk/Reviews/interactive/H...9180/page-1.htm
He's been teasing a full review for months, but is waiting for a production model, which has slipped some until August or so. Hopefully no longer than that.
I love my Canon i9900, but I do want more longevity for my prints, not so much for me but I give away a good number of prints to friends (mostly of their kids swimming) and I'd like to feel comfortable knowing they could look back on those 20, 30, or 50 years from now and still see a quality print.
