I'm all for that and I'd be happier with this printer if it didn't do CDs nor had PictBridge. Anybody who buys this will be solely interested in it as a dedicated medium format photo printer. As far as I'm concerned the unnecessary bells and whistles just add complexity and are another thing that might go wrong.
I wish manufacturers would learn that more isn't always better.
