I recently picked up one of the LaCie 730 LDC monitors which came with a colormeter and calibration software and printer profiler. I think its one of the best investments I have made in a long_long time. Photos out of the Sony 700&900 (and one other camera) are an absolute "spot on match with prints." Conversions from RGB to CMYK for pro lab prints from CS4 has never been so accurate for me. Today I truly understand. Color management is so important and so few understand this.
Come on, you must be a "Pro" to have one of these monsters on your desk!
I'd love to see what camera gear you're using.
