I'm reading various prepress mailing lists too. The program which is
most often discussed concerning difficulties/errors for prepress service
bureaus or printers is definitely Quark (or better: files sent in Quark
native format instead of PS or PDF).

I've used pdftex generated PDF files containing photos for direct film
production (4c and duotone) without ***any*** problems.

Best regards,
