I've read that the Ri 3000/6000 is not as professional as the Epson F2100, so I would imagine the Ri 1000 would be even less so.

I'm trying to make sure that the release of the Ri 1000 won't make me regret the purchase of the Epson F2100

Thanks for any help.
Id go with the gtx in my personal opinion. THe ri 1000 does increase the DPI with the new gen5 print heads but I still think the gtx is a better printer.. I would even take the f2100 over the ricoh. I have a ri 6000 and always wish I had gone with the better technology vs the ink price savings. Just worth having a solid print every time.
