need suggestions for a printer

After a year or two of dSLR photography (Kx and several Pentax lenses), I have probably got over 7500 photos stored now in my iPhoto folders on my Mac.
Now I'm ready to start printing !
I've done some reading and I've talked to friends and to pros at Art Fairs.
I will be looking at everything from 5 X7 to much bigger.
Children and family; nature; lots of water and weather and clouds; landscapes; sports.
I'm looking at the Epson R3000 - this price range is okay for me ($650 - $700).
Comments, suggestions would be really appreciated !
Thank you.

I don't know about the US, but here in the UK I can get a 18x12 print on Fuji silver halide archival paper done for 1 plus VAT. Sort of makes printing your own a no-brainer.
